How to Create a ChatGPT Bot in Node.js

2 min read

Creating a ChatGPT bot in Node.js is easy and straightforward. Here are the steps you can follow:

  1. Install Node.js on your machine if you haven’t already.
  2. Set up a development environment using your preferred code editor.
  3. Install the ‘openai’ package by running the command ‘npm install openai’ in your project directory.
  4. Generate an OpenAI API key from the OpenAI website.
  5. Initialize the OpenAI library in your Node.js project using your API key.
  6. Write the necessary code to initialize and interact with the ChatGPT API.
  7. Handle user inputs and responses using appropriate logic and API calls.
  8. Test your ChatGPT bot by starting the conversation and evaluating the responses.

By following these steps, you’ll be able to create your own ChatGPT bot in Node.js.

Can you provide an example code snippet?

Certainly! Here’s an example code snippet to help you get started:

const { ChatCompletionClient } = require("openai");

const chatClient = new ChatCompletionClient("YOUR_API_KEY");

async function chatWithBot(prompt) {
  const response = await chatClient.create(prompt);
  return response.choices[0].text.trim();

const userPrompt = "What is the weather today?";

  .then((botResponse) => {
    console.log("Bot:", botResponse);
  .catch((err) => {
    console.error("Error:", err);

You can customize the ‘userPrompt’ variable to simulate different conversations with your ChatGPT bot. Remember to replace ‘YOUR_API_KEY’ with your actual API key.
