Code Configuration

To allow added flexibility and eventually support an entire plugin ecosystem, Continue can be configured programmatically in a Python file, ~/.continue/config.ts.

Whenever Continue loads, it carries out the following steps:

  1. Load ~/.continue/config.json
  2. Convert this into a Config object
  3. If ~/.continue/config.ts exists and has defined modifyConfig correctly, call modifyConfig with the Config object to generate the final configuration

Defining a modifyConfig function allows you to make any final modifications to your initial config.json. Here's an example that sets the temperature to a random number and maxTokens to 1024:

export function modifyConfig(config: Config): Config {
config.completionOptions = {
temperature: Math.random(),
maxTokens: 1024,
return config;
