Groq currently offers free API access to the models they host. The Llama 3 70B model works well with aider and is comparable to GPT-3.5 in code editing performance. You’ll need a Groq API key.

To use Llama3 70B:

pip install aider-chat

export GROQ_API_KEY=<key> # Mac/Linux
setx   GROQ_API_KEY <key> # Windows

aider --model groq/llama3-70b-8192

# List models available from Groq
aider --models groq/
