Open Source by Pieces: A Community for AI-Enabled Dev Tool Enthusiasts

At Pieces, we are dedicated to empowering developers by fostering a vibrant and inclusive open-source community. We believe in the transformative power of open-source software and are committed to contributing to this ecosystem with innovative tools and resources. Our latest initiative, Open Source by Pieces, is just the first step in our journey to support and collaborate with developers worldwide.

Our commitment to open source is embodied in the initial release of our TypeScript, Python, Dart and Kotlin SDKs. These SDKs give developers direct access to Pieces OS, the “brains” behind the Pieces for Developers suite. Pieces OS enhances development workflows with efficient data processing, robust machine learning management, seamless tool integration, and strong security, all while operating locally and offline, enabling developers to integrate Pieces into their favorite dev tool or build their own apps. For example, developers can manage snippets and interact with a copilot via our open-source CLI agent, or build their own open-source copilot powered by local large language models.

We understand that the best solutions come from collaboration. That’s why we are opening up our platform to the community, inviting developers to contribute, innovate, and build upon our existing tools. Our goal is to create an environment where developers can easily integrate new tools with Pieces, share their improvements to existing tools, and benefit from the collective expertise of the community. By working together, we can create tools that are more robust, versatile, and user-friendly.

We invite all developers to join the Open Source by Pieces community (our Discord is a great place to start!). Whether you’re a seasoned contributor or just starting your open-source journey, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved. From contributing to our SDKs to developing new plugins and integrations, your participation is invaluable. Together, we can push the boundaries of what’s possible and make a lasting impact on the developer community.

At Pieces, our commitment to open source is more than just a strategy; it’s a core part of our mission to support developers. We are excited to see what we can achieve together and look forward to building a brighter future for open source. Join us in this journey and help us create tools that empower developers and foster innovation across the globe.
