Lesson №2 "Code Generation with Chat GPT". Part 1

In this lesson, we will explore how ChatGPT can be used to automate code writing, particularly when dealing with template or repetitive code.

Template code is code that repeats itself over and over again without significant changes. Developers often have to write such code, and automating this process can be very beneficial. Here ChatGPT can come to the rescue.

Creating a simple website using HTML

One of the primary tasks that ChatGPT can perform is generating code for a simple website. For example, you can ask ChatGPT to generate a basic HTML page structure. Here is an example request:

"Generate a simple HTML code for a website with the title 'My First Site' and a paragraph of text 'Welcome to my site'."

In response to this request, ChatGPT can provide the following code:

You can copy this code, paste it into a code editor, such as Visual Studio Code, save the file with a .html extension, and view the result in your web browser.

Creating a web application with React

Next, we can ask the chatbot how to create a web application using the React library. The chatbot can tell us about the necessary steps, such as installing Node.js and using the command line. It is important to note that sometimes interacting with the chatbot requires a certain understanding of the questions in your subject area to know how to ask correctly.

You can ask ChatGPT to provide an example of a React component code or explain how to create a new React application using the Vite tool.

Before asking ChatGPT to generate code, make sure you have the necessary tools installed, such as Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) or yarn.

Here is an example request for creating a new React application: "Explain to me how to create a new React application named 'my-app' using Vite."

ChatGPT can provide you with the following set of instructions:

Important notes

Remember that although ChatGPT is quite powerful and can generate code based on your instructions, it still depends on the correctness and precision of your requests. Moreover, you might need to review and refactor the generated code to ensure it meets your requirements and code quality standards.

Now, let's try it out in practice!

Practical exercise

Task: Use ChatGPT to create a simple HTML website.


  1. Open the chat interface with ChatGPT.

  2. Make a specific request for generating HTML code. For example, you can ask it to create a simple HTML structure.

  3. Review and refactor the generated code as necessary.

  4. Create a new .html file, insert the code there, and open it in a web browser.


  1. Your request might look like this: “Please generate a simple HTML structure for a website with a title and a paragraph of text.”

  2. The response could be as follows:

  1. Now you can create a new .html file, insert the generated code, and open the file in a web browser to see the result.


Thus, using Chat GPT for code generation can be a useful tool for automating routine tasks and speeding up the development process. However, don't forget that you should have basic knowledge in the field of development and programming languages to use this tool effectively.
