Desktop AI Assistant powered by GPT-4, GPT-4V, GPT-3.5, DALL-E 3 and Langchain LLMs - chatbot, assistant, vision and more

PyGPT is all-in-one Desktop AI Assistant that provides direct interaction with OpenAI language models, including GPT-4, GPT-4 Vision, and GPT-3.5, through the OpenAI API. The application also integrates with alternative LLMs, like those available on HuggingFace, by utilizing Langchain.


  • Desktop AI Assistant for Linux, Windows and Mac written in Python.
  • Works similarly to ChatGPT, but locally (on a desktop computer).
  • 9 modes of operation: Chat, Vision, Completion, Assistant, Image generation, Langchain, Chat with files, Experts and Agent (autonomous).
  • Supports multiple models: GPT-4, GPT-3.5, and any model accessible through Langchain.
  • Included support features for individuals with disabilities: customizable keyboard shortcuts, voice control, and translation of on-screen actions into audio via speech synthesis.
  • Handles and stores the full context of conversations (short-term memory).
  • Real-time video camera capture in Vision mode.
  • Internet access via Google and Microsoft Bing.
  • Speech synthesis via Microsoft Azure, Google, Eleven Labs and OpenAI Text-To-Speech services.
  • Speech recognition via OpenAI Whisper, Google, Google Cloud and Microsoft Bing.
  • Image analysis via GPT-4 Vision.
  • Crontab / Task scheduler included.
  • Integrated Langchain support (you can connect to any LLM, e.g., on HuggingFace).
  • Integrated Llama-index support: chat with txt, pdf, csv, html, md, docx, json, epub, xlsx, xml, webpages, Google, GitHub, video/audio, images and other data types, or use conversation history as additional context provided to the model.
  • Integrated calendar, day notes and search in contexts by selected date.
  • Commands execution (via plugins: access to the local filesystem, Python code interpreter, system commands execution).
  • Custom commands creation and execution.
  • Custom external API calls creation and execution.
