AI (Artificial Intelligence) features - ELITE subscribers only

1. Chat with ChatGPT

Use the /chat command, followed by any request, and ChatGPT will answer you ;)

(consumes tokens, see limit)

2. Generate summaries

You can configure the ELITE Feed Reader Bot to generate summaries (using ChatGPT Artificial Intelligence) of web articles, and even Youtube videos!

First, open the template page (using the /template command):

Click on the link to open the template page. Then, add a new template:

And fill its content with:

The content is the following text, if you want to copy/paste it:

And click on "Add template" to save this new template:

Finally, choose this template for the feed(s) for which you want to receive a summary (in the "Feed settings" grid, click on "edit", then select the "Template with summary" template):

Here I've chosen a Youtube feed. When a new video is available, the bot will send a summary (based on the video's transcript) at the end of the post:

Voilà! Thanks ChatGPT :)


By default, the summary is generated in English.
You can specify another language using its two-letter code, for example: %SUMMARY_ES% (for Spanish) or %SUMMARY_FR% (for French).
(full list of codes here)


Use the %SUMMARY% variable with parcimony. ChatGPT calls are limited, and when the bot reaches your daily limit, it will stop generating summaries.
To view your daily usage, use the /chat_stats command.
To increase your limits (at an additional cost) send a message to @jcmag.

If you want to display %ITEM_CONTENT% when the summary could not be generated (because of an error, or having reached the daily limit), you can use: %SUMMARY_CONTENT% (or %SUMMARY_XX_CONTENT%).

Use your own ChatGPT API key

If you are a ChatGPT API subscriber, you can use your own API key. Then the bot won't check any limits; be sure to set a usage limit in your ChatGPT account to avoid paying too much.
To set the API key, use the "ChatGPT API key" setting in the template settings.

Customize the ChatGPT prompt

You can use the "ChatGPT prompt" setting, in the template settings, to customize the prompt sent to ChatGPT.
By default, the prompt used for youtube videos is:
Summarize and translate in English this video's transcript:

And for all other feeds:
Summarize in English this text:

The bot will automatically add to this prompt the video's transcript, or the article's content.

3. Generate subtitles for videos

The bot can automatically generate subtitles for videos, based on the audio. It uses ChatGPT, so it will consume tokens from your daily limit.
Just edit the template used by the feed, and check "Add subtitles to videos":

The subtitles can also be translated, using the DeepL service. Type the language code in the "Subtitles language (using DeepL)" setting.
Follow this tutorial to know how to create a DeepL account (free) and configure the DeepL API key.

4. Analyzing messages

The bot can analyze the messages it sends. It uses ChatGPT, so it will consume tokens from your daily limit.
For example, you can ask ChatGPT to analyze the tone of a tweet. For that, enter in the "ChatGPT analysis prompt" setting of the template:

Here is the text if you want to copy/paste it:

And put the %ANALYSIS% variable where you want to display the response from ChatGPT:

Here, a smiley representing the tone of the tweet will be displayed:

If you have any trouble, ask help on the support group ;)
