Never forget that Git Command


GitHub Repo

In the spirit of continiously trying out new tools, I wanted to get my hands on Vercel's edge runtime and play around with OpenAI's API! Fortunately for me, Vercel's own @nutlope had made a pretty awesome Twitter Bio tool using the tools I was trying to learn. You can find out about his project here.

Utilizing @nutlope's demo made this for quite the easy afternoon project. In order to test out the edge runtime it was easy as exporting the correct config in my api file:

export const config = {
  runtime: 'edge',

Next, we needed to be able to take in an input (the prompt the user would input in the terminal window) and send that to OpenAI's API. OpenAI's API takes in a lot of variables such as the model you want to use, the prompt to send, max_tokens, etc. You can find out more about the parameters that you can tweak here. Below is the current payload we are sending for this demo:

const payload: OpenAIStreamPayload = {
  model: 'text-davinci-003',
  prompt: `Give me the git command that would do the following: ${prompt}`,
  temperature: 0.7,
  top_p: 1,
  frequency_penalty: 0,
  presence_penalty: 0,
  max_tokens: 200,
  stream: true,
  n: 1,

As I am exploring these AI tools more and more, I am noticing that the integration is the easiest part. The most challenging party becomes the "prompt hacking". As you can tell, mine was rather simplistic: Give me the git command that would do the following:. I am sure that there is a more efficient prompt I could feed it...

All in all, it is pretty amazing that with the modern day tools at our disposal, we can create something like this within a few short hours!
