Information

We’re going to use OpenAI / ChatGPT to help us build a shopping list based on recipe URLs.

Step 1: Background

Let’s start with a database, for this example, a database of recipes, each with a name and URL:

2
Name
URL
1
Traditional Injera
2
Ful Mudammas
3
San Francisco-Style Vietnamese American Garlic Noodles
4
Thanksgiving Stuffing
There are no rows in this table

Step 2: Select Options from the Database

Here, we have a dropdown list where you can select one or more recipes from the database.
Select the recipes to include in your list
Blank
Please select a recipe

Step 3: Customize the Prompt

Type in the question you’d like to send to ChatGPT. There is a checkbox to Append URLs from your selected recipes to the end of your prompt- this is turned on by default, as the example query is asking ChatGPT to build us a shopping list based off of those URLs!

List all of the ingredients without duplicate items sorted by grocery type from these recipes:
There are no rows in this table

Step 4: Results

Here are the results. The generated prompt is what was submitted to ChatGPT, and the shopping list is the actual answer given back. Please note that whenever you adjust the prompt, change “Append URLs”, or change the selected recipes in the dropdown, the query will need to be resent. If you have a free trial account with OpenAI, you might not want to go too crazy 🙃

Generated Prompt

Please select at least one recipe to generate a prompt.
