ChatGPT API

Node.js client for the official ChatGPT API.

NPM Build Status MIT License Prettier Code Formatting

Intro

This package is a Node.js wrapper around ChatGPT by OpenAI. TS batteries included.

Example usage

Updates

April 10, 2023

This package now fully supports GPT-4!

We also just released a TypeScript chatgpt-plugin package which contains helpers and examples to make it as easy as possible to start building your own ChatGPT Plugins in JS/TS. Even if you don't have developer access to ChatGPT Plugins yet, you can still use the chatgpt-plugin repo to get a head start on building your own plugins locally.

If you have access to the gpt-4 model, you can run the following to test out the CLI with GPT-4:

npx chatgpt@latest --model gpt-4 "Hello world"

Using the chatgpt CLI with gpt-4

We still support both the official ChatGPT API and the unofficial proxy API, but we now recommend using the official API since it's significantly more robust and supports GPT-4.

Method Free? Robust? Quality?
ChatGPTAPI No Yes Real ChatGPT models + GPT-4
ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI Yes No ChatGPT webapp

Note: We strongly recommend using ChatGPTAPI since it uses the officially supported API from OpenAI. We will likely remove support for ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI in a future release.

  1. ChatGPTAPI - Uses the gpt-3.5-turbo model with the official OpenAI chat completions API (official, robust approach, but it's not free)
  2. ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI - Uses an unofficial proxy server to access ChatGPT's backend API in a way that circumvents Cloudflare (uses the real ChatGPT and is pretty lightweight, but relies on a third-party server and is rate-limited)
Previous Updates
March 1, 2023

The official OpenAI chat completions API has been released, and it is now the default for this package!

Method Free? Robust? Quality?
ChatGPTAPI No Yes Real ChatGPT models
ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI Yes Maybe Real ChatGPT

Note: We strongly recommend using ChatGPTAPI since it uses the officially supported API from OpenAI. We may remove support for ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI in a future release.

  1. ChatGPTAPI - Uses the gpt-3.5-turbo model with the official OpenAI chat completions API (official, robust approach, but it's not free)
  2. ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI - Uses an unofficial proxy server to access ChatGPT's backend API in a way that circumvents Cloudflare (uses the real ChatGPT and is pretty lightweight, but relies on a third-party server and is rate-limited)
Feb 19, 2023

We now provide three ways of accessing the unofficial ChatGPT API, all of which have tradeoffs:

Method Free? Robust? Quality?
ChatGPTAPI No Yes Mimics ChatGPT
ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI Yes Maybe Real ChatGPT
ChatGPTAPIBrowser (v3) Yes No Real ChatGPT

Note: I recommend that you use either ChatGPTAPI or ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI.

  1. ChatGPTAPI - (Used to use) text-davinci-003 to mimic ChatGPT via the official OpenAI completions API (most robust approach, but it's not free and doesn't use a model fine-tuned for chat)
  2. ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI - Uses an unofficial proxy server to access ChatGPT's backend API in a way that circumvents Cloudflare (uses the real ChatGPT and is pretty lightweight, but relies on a third-party server and is rate-limited)
  3. ChatGPTAPIBrowser - (deprecated; v3.5.1 of this package) Uses Puppeteer to access the official ChatGPT webapp (uses the real ChatGPT, but very flaky, heavyweight, and error prone)
Feb 5, 2023

OpenAI has disabled the leaked chat model we were previously using, so we're now defaulting to text-davinci-003, which is not free.

We've found several other hidden, fine-tuned chat models, but OpenAI keeps disabling them, so we're searching for alternative workarounds.

Feb 1, 2023

This package no longer requires any browser hacks it is now using the official OpenAI completions API with a leaked model that ChatGPT uses under the hood.

import { ChatGPTAPI } from 'chatgpt'

const api = new ChatGPTAPI({
  apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY
})

const res = await api.sendMessage('Hello World!')
console.log(res.text)

Please upgrade to chatgpt@latest (at least v4.0.0). The updated version is significantly more lightweight and robust compared with previous versions. You also don't have to worry about IP issues or rate limiting.

Huge shoutout to @waylaidwanderer for discovering the leaked chat model!

If you run into any issues, we do have a pretty active ChatGPT Hackers Discord with over 8k developers from the Node.js & Python communities.

Lastly, please consider starring this repo and following me on twitter twitter to help support the project.

Thanks && cheers, Travis

CLI

To run the CLI, you'll need an OpenAI API key:

export OPENAI_API_KEY="sk-TODO"
npx chatgpt "your prompt here"

By default, the response is streamed to stdout, the results are stored in a local config file, and every invocation starts a new conversation. You can use -c to continue the previous conversation and --no-stream to disable streaming.

Usage:
  $ chatgpt <prompt>

Commands:
  <prompt>  Ask ChatGPT a question
  rm-cache  Clears the local message cache
  ls-cache  Prints the local message cache path

For more info, run any command with the `--help` flag:
  $ chatgpt --help
  $ chatgpt rm-cache --help
  $ chatgpt ls-cache --help

Options:
  -c, --continue          Continue last conversation (default: false)
  -d, --debug             Enables debug logging (default: false)
  -s, --stream            Streams the response (default: true)
  -s, --store             Enables the local message cache (default: true)
  -t, --timeout           Timeout in milliseconds
  -k, --apiKey            OpenAI API key
  -o, --apiOrg            OpenAI API organization
  -n, --conversationName  Unique name for the conversation
  -h, --help              Display this message
  -v, --version           Display version number

If you have access to the gpt-4 model, you can run the following to test out the CLI with GPT-4:

Using the chatgpt CLI with gpt-4

Install

npm install chatgpt

Make sure you're using node >= 18 so fetch is available (or node >= 14 if you install a fetch polyfill).

Usage

To use this module from Node.js, you need to pick between two methods:

Method Free? Robust? Quality?
ChatGPTAPI No Yes Real ChatGPT models + GPT-4
ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI Yes No Real ChatGPT webapp
  1. ChatGPTAPI - Uses the gpt-3.5-turbo model with the official OpenAI chat completions API (official, robust approach, but it's not free). You can override the model, completion params, and system message to fully customize your assistant.

  2. ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI - Uses an unofficial proxy server to access ChatGPT's backend API in a way that circumvents Cloudflare (uses the real ChatGPT and is pretty lightweight, but relies on a third-party server and is rate-limited)

Both approaches have very similar APIs, so it should be simple to swap between them.

Note: We strongly recommend using ChatGPTAPI since it uses the officially supported API from OpenAI and it also supports gpt-4. We will likely remove support for ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI in a future release.

Usage - ChatGPTAPI

Sign up for an OpenAI API key and store it in your environment.

import { ChatGPTAPI } from 'chatgpt'

async function example() {
  const api = new ChatGPTAPI({
    apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY
  })

  const res = await api.sendMessage('Hello World!')
  console.log(res.text)
}

You can override the default model (gpt-3.5-turbo) and any OpenAI chat completion params using completionParams:

const api = new ChatGPTAPI({
  apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY,
  completionParams: {
    model: 'gpt-4',
    temperature: 0.5,
    top_p: 0.8
  }
})

If you want to track the conversation, you'll need to pass the parentMessageId like this:

const api = new ChatGPTAPI({ apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY })

// send a message and wait for the response
let res = await api.sendMessage('What is OpenAI?')
console.log(res.text)

// send a follow-up
res = await api.sendMessage('Can you expand on that?', {
  parentMessageId: res.id
})
console.log(res.text)

// send another follow-up
res = await api.sendMessage('What were we talking about?', {
  parentMessageId: res.id
})
console.log(res.text)

You can add streaming via the onProgress handler:

const res = await api.sendMessage('Write a 500 word essay on frogs.', {
  // print the partial response as the AI is "typing"
  onProgress: (partialResponse) => console.log(partialResponse.text)
})

// print the full text at the end
console.log(res.text)

You can add a timeout using the timeoutMs option:

// timeout after 2 minutes (which will also abort the underlying HTTP request)
const response = await api.sendMessage(
  'write me a really really long essay on frogs',
  {
    timeoutMs: 2 * 60 * 1000
  }
)

If you want to see more info about what's actually being sent to OpenAI's chat completions API, set the debug: true option in the ChatGPTAPI constructor:

const api = new ChatGPTAPI({
  apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY,
  debug: true
})

We default to a basic systemMessage. You can override this in either the ChatGPTAPI constructor or sendMessage:

const res = await api.sendMessage('what is the answer to the universe?', {
  systemMessage: `You are ChatGPT, a large language model trained by OpenAI. You answer as concisely as possible for each responseIf you are generating a list, do not have too many items.
Current date: ${new Date().toISOString()}\n\n`
})

Note that we automatically handle appending the previous messages to the prompt and attempt to optimize for the available tokens (which defaults to 4096).

Usage in CommonJS (Dynamic import)
async function example() {
  // To use ESM in CommonJS, you can use a dynamic import like this:
  const { ChatGPTAPI } = await import('chatgpt')
  // You can also try dynamic importing like this:
  // const importDynamic = new Function('modulePath', 'return import(modulePath)')
  // const { ChatGPTAPI } = await importDynamic('chatgpt')

  const api = new ChatGPTAPI({ apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY })

  const res = await api.sendMessage('Hello World!')
  console.log(res.text)
}

Usage - ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI

The API for ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI is almost exactly the same. You just need to provide a ChatGPT accessToken instead of an OpenAI API key.

import { ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI } from 'chatgpt'

async function example() {
  const api = new ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI({
    accessToken: process.env.OPENAI_ACCESS_TOKEN
  })

  const res = await api.sendMessage('Hello World!')
  console.log(res.text)
}

See demos/demo-reverse-proxy for a full example:

npx tsx demos/demo-reverse-proxy.ts

ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI messages also contain a conversationid in addition to parentMessageId, since the ChatGPT webapp can't reference messages across different accounts & conversations.

Reverse Proxy

You can override the reverse proxy by passing apiReverseProxyUrl:

const api = new ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI({
  accessToken: process.env.OPENAI_ACCESS_TOKEN,
  apiReverseProxyUrl: 'https://your-example-server.com/api/conversation'
})

Known reverse proxies run by community members include:

Reverse Proxy URL Author Rate Limits Last Checked
https://ai.fakeopen.com/api/conversation @pengzhile 5 req / 10 seconds by IP 4/18/2023
https://api.pawan.krd/backend-api/conversation @PawanOsman 50 req / 15 seconds (~3 r/s) 3/23/2023

Note: info on how the reverse proxies work is not being published at this time in order to prevent OpenAI from disabling access.

Access Token

To use ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI, you'll need an OpenAI access token from the ChatGPT webapp. To do this, you can use any of the following methods which take an email and password and return an access token:

These libraries work with email + password accounts (e.g., they do not support accounts where you auth via Microsoft / Google).

Alternatively, you can manually get an accessToken by logging in to the ChatGPT webapp and then opening https://chat.openai.com/api/auth/session, which will return a JSON object containing your accessToken string.

Access tokens last for days.

Note: using a reverse proxy will expose your access token to a third-party. There shouldn't be any adverse effects possible from this, but please consider the risks before using this method.

Docs

See the auto-generated docs for more info on methods and parameters.

Demos

Most of the demos use ChatGPTAPI. It should be pretty easy to convert them to use ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI if you'd rather use that approach. The only thing that needs to change is how you initialize the api with an accessToken instead of an apiKey.

To run the included demos:

  1. clone repo
  2. install node deps
  3. set OPENAI_API_KEY in .env

A basic demo is included for testing purposes:

npx tsx demos/demo.ts

A demo showing on progress handler:

npx tsx demos/demo-on-progress.ts

The on progress demo uses the optional onProgress parameter to sendMessage to receive intermediary results as ChatGPT is "typing".

A conversation demo:

npx tsx demos/demo-conversation.ts

A persistence demo shows how to store messages in Redis for persistence:

npx tsx demos/demo-persistence.ts

Any keyv adaptor is supported for persistence, and there are overrides if you'd like to use a different way of storing / retrieving messages.

Note that persisting message is required for remembering the context of previous conversations beyond the scope of the current Node.js process, since by default, we only store messages in memory. Here's an external demo of using a completely custom database solution to persist messages.

Note: Persistence is handled automatically when using ChatGPTUnofficialProxyAPI because it is connecting indirectly to ChatGPT.

Projects

All of these awesome projects are built using the chatgpt package.

If you create a cool integration, feel free to open a PR and add it to the list.

Compatibility

  • This package is ESM-only.
  • This package supports node >= 14.
  • This module assumes that fetch is installed.
    • In node >= 18, it's installed by default.
    • In node < 18, you need to install a polyfill like unfetch/polyfill (guide) or isomorphic-fetch (guide).
  • If you want to build a website using chatgpt, we recommend using it only from your backend API
