Note: Watch how I wrote this (super cheesy) post in ~7 minutes with Cursor, via the new Zoom Clips Beta Feature

Writing about Cursor with Cursor.

I’ve been exploring Cursor, an AI-first code editor that’s making waves in the developer community. It’s being used by engineers at big names like Shopify, Samsung, OpenAI, and Facebook, to name a few. But what’s all the fuss about?

Well, Cursor is packed with features that are designed to make coding faster and more efficient. For starters, it lets you chat with your project. No more wasting time hunting for the right place to start a change or the correct method to call. It’s like having a knowledgeable coding buddy right there with you.

But that’s not all. Cursor also allows you to browse documentation directly and refer to code definitions and files. It’s like having a coding reference library at your fingertips.

One feature that really stands out is Cursor’s ability to make code changes. It’s like having an AI assistant that can write low-level logic for you. Need to change an entire method or class? Just give it a prompt. Want to generate code from scratch? Just give it a simple instruction. It’s a game-changer.

And let’s not forget about debugging. Cursor can scan your code for bugs and help you fix them quickly. It’s like having a personal bug detective that automatically investigates linter errors and stack traces to figure out the root cause of your bug.

I’ve been using Cursor every single day (since yesterday 😜), and it’s become an integral part of my coding routine (today). It’s not just the advanced features that make it stand out, but also the ease of use and the efficiency it brings to my workflow. It’s more than just an editor, it’s a tool that truly understands the needs of a developer.

So, is Cursor worth the hype? Well, it’s loved by developers all over the world and has helped tens of thousands of them be more productive. It’s not just an editor; it’s a game-changer in the world of coding. And I’m excited to see where it goes from here.
