Channel Version Published

Use natural language prompts to get basic CLI commands ready to paste and run from the terminal.

A very basic, experimental ChatGPT CLI app that uses the OpenAI API to convert natural language prompts to terminal commands. This app assumes you are running Ubuntu in its responses.

Use the app by including prompts after the snap name, for example: $ chatcli list all running services

The response will be printed and automatically copied to your clipboard for ease of running. Be careful! Not all responses will be reliable. Ensure you understand what you are running before doing so.

NOTE: To use this app you will need to provide your own personal OpenAI API token on first run, more details can be found here:
