“By selecting the address of the contract, users can access and interact with source code files,” the description says.
As it runs, the program generates hints using the large OpenAI language model, but does not support conversation mode.
To work with the tool, you only need an OpenAI API key. Code Reader automatically extracts the source code at the address of the contract. The user can interact with the data by asking questions for deeper understanding.
As examples of the use of AI solutions, the developers named:
- reviewing the code to better understand its inner workings;
- obtaining a list of functions for reading / writing data in Ethereum with detailed explanations;
- integration studies dapps.
“User feedback is very valuable to us in order to expand the capabilities of the tool and solve any problems. Leave your feedback and help us improve Code Reader during this beta version,” the service team wrote.
Recall that in 2020, Etherscan added the ETHProtect extension to track compromised addresses and funds.
