  • AI Apps for Developer Experience
    Enable more efficient and seamless developer workflows by automating repetitive work and forecasting next actions.
  • AI Apps for Collaboration
    Foster thoughtful and innovative collaboration across individuals, teams, and tools.

Sounds fun but just to understand it correctly, there is no forge AI toolkit? We should use external systems?


Hi @clouless, that is correct. There are a few AI platforms/services that are mentioned on the Devpost site. Of course, you’re not limited to using those listed.


I found https://huggingface.co/ an amazing resource for free models, learning and trying out ideas.
Perhaps @nmansilla you can include this in the devpost resources?


Thanks @UlrichKuhnhardtIzym1 ! Great suggestion - we’ve added the link :slight_smile:

I would love to build an app using the Atlassian Intelligence API. That’s the right thing to do, right, no data egress. Could you please add the REST API documentation links as well.
Thanks, can’t wait to explore the Atlassian Intelligence interface.
Cheers, Ulrich

Hi @UlrichKuhnhardtIzym1. Although this is something that’s currently being explored, APIs for Atlassian Intelligence are not available at this time.


Any chance to have Bitbucket Forge EAP available to participate with Bitbucket apps for Codegeist?

The fact that only Forge apps are allowed would make it otherwise impossible to participate with a Bitbucket app.

Especially given that one of the categories match with Bitbucket’s purpose:

AI Apps for Developer Experience
Enable more efficient and seamless developer workflows by automating repetitive work and forecasting next actions.

I think starting the Bitbucket Forge EAP for Codegeist now would be a great chance for Atlassian to get early feedback from the community, and to get more Bitbucket Cloud apps in general.

Completely agree with @michael.rueegg !
We were also exploring ideas for Bitbucket apps, and the absence of Forge for Bitbucket was recognized as a blocker.

Hi @michael.rueegg, @aioceva and all,

The Bitbucket Forge EAP will be available before the end of September.
It will be an open EAP so the ability to build apps on Forge for Bitbucket will be available for everybody without any need to join a group or to have the feature enabled on a specific site.

In the meantime, you can get an idea of what will be available by checking the recording of the Forge roadmap here.
On the DevDay23 site, we also have a recording of a hands on training by Edmund showing the Forge capabilities. Here is the direct link to that session. To follow along, you’ll need to wait for the EAP to launch.

One last note, while the EAP is open, we have prepared a group for developers and teams who might want to join the conversation, share feedback and engage with the engineering team about the EAP.
You can sign up here: Bitbucket Cloud x Forge - EAP - Atlassian Community

Can’t wait to see your app submission(s) at Codegeist!



Good news @ccurti, we are looking forward to it!
