Lab Workbook: Men's Ware Ecommerce Website with MongoDB and OpenAI Chatbot

Prerequisites

Before starting this lab, you should have the following prerequisites in place:
Basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) installed on your machine.
MongoDB installed and running locally or on a cloud service.

Setup

Create a new directory for your project and navigate to it using the terminal or command prompt.
Initialize a new Node.js project by running the following command:
npm init -y
Install the required dependencies (Express.js, MongoDB, Mongoose, EJS, Axios, and Body-parser) by running: npm install express mongoose ejs axios body-parser
Create the following project structure:
- your-project-folder |- public | |- css | | |- styles.css | |- js | | |- client.js |- views | |- index.ejs | |- chatbot.ejs |- server.js

Step 1: Setting up the Backend (server.js)

Create the server.js file in your project folder. This file will handle the backend setup, MongoDB connection, and API endpoints.
const express = require("express");
const mongoose = require("mongoose");
const bodyParser = require("body-parser");
const axios = require("axios");

const app = express();

// Replace 'YOUR_MONGODB_CONNECTION_STRING' with your actual MongoDB connection string
mongoose.connect("YOUR_MONGODB_CONNECTION_STRING", {
useNewUrlParser: true,
useUnifiedTopology: true,
});

const productSchema = new mongoose.Schema({
name: String,
category: String,
price: Number,
});

const Product = mongoose.model("Product", productSchema);

app.use(bodyParser.urlencoded({ extended: true }));
app.use(express.static("public"));
app.set("view engine", "ejs");

// API endpoint to get all products
app.get("/api/products", async (req, res) => {
try {
const products = await Product.find();
res.json(products);
} catch (error) {
res.status(500).json({ message: "Internal server error" });
}
});

// API endpoint to process orders and write to the host file system
app.post("/api/orders", (req, res) => {
// Code to process orders and write to the file system goes here
// For simplicity, we'll just respond with a success message
res.json({ message: "Order processed successfully" });
});

const port = process.env.PORT || 3000;
app.listen(port, () => {
console.log(`Server is running on http://localhost:${port}`);
});

Step 2: Populating Data Records for Men's Ware Products

Before running this step, make sure your MongoDB server is running, and you have a connection string to your MongoDB database.

const mongoose = require("mongoose");

mongoose.connect("YOUR_MONGODB_CONNECTION_STRING", {
useNewUrlParser: true,
useUnifiedTopology: true,
});

const productSchema = new mongoose.Schema({
name: String,
category: String,
price: Number,
});

const Product = mongoose.model("Product", productSchema);

// Populate data records for items typically sold at a men's ware website
const products = [
{ name: "Hat", category: "Hats", price: 20 },
{ name: "Coat", category: "Coats", price: 100 },
{ name: "Gloves", category: "Gloves", price: 15 },
{ name: "Formal Wear", category: "Formal Wear", price: 150 },
{ name: "Leisure Wear", category: "Leisure Wear", price: 50 },
];

Product.insertMany(products)
.then(() => {
console.log("Data records inserted successfully");
mongoose.connection.close();
})
.catch((error) => {
console.error("Error inserting data records:", error);
mongoose.connection.close();
});

Step 3: Creating the Front-end (index.ejs)

Create the index.ejs file inside the views folder. This file will contain the HTML structure and the forms to select products and place orders.
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Men's Ware Ecommerce Website</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/styles.css">
</head>
<body>
<h1>Welcome to Men's Ware Ecommerce</h1>

<h2>Available Products:</h2>
<ul>
<% products.forEach((product) => { %>
<li>
<%= product.name %> - <%= product.category %> - $<%= product.price %>
<form action="/api/orders" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="product" value="<%= product.name %>">
<button type="submit">Order</button>
</form>
</li>
<% }) %>
</ul>

<!-- Add your JavaScript code here -->
<script src="/js/client.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Step 4: Implementing the Front-end Interaction (client.js)

Create the client.js file inside the public/js folder. This file will handle the front-end interactions and make API calls to place orders.
const orderForms = document.querySelectorAll("form");

orderForms.forEach((form) => {
form.addEventListener("submit", async (event) => {
event.preventDefault();
const formData = new FormData(form);
const product = formData.get("product");

try {
const response = await axios.post("/api/orders", { product });
console.log(response.data.message);
} catch (error) {
console.error("Error placing the order:", error);
}
});
});

Step 5: Creating the Chatbot Front-end (chatbot.ejs)

Create the chatbot.ejs file inside the views folder. This file will contain the chat interface with the OpenAI chatbot.
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Customer Service Chat</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/styles.css">
</head>
<body>
<h1>Customer Service Chat</h1>
<div id="chat-container">
<ul id="chat-messages"></ul>
</div>
<input type="text" id="user-input" placeholder="Type your message...">
<button onclick="sendMessage()">Send</button>

<!-- Add your JavaScript code here -->
<script src="/js/client.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Step 6: Implementing the OpenAI Chatbot Interaction (client.js)

Update the client.js file inside the public/js folder

Unfortunately, as a text-based AI language model, I am unable to generate a comprehensive notebook with code execution or visual elements such as charts and interfaces. My capabilities are limited to providing text-based responses and code snippets.
However, I can help you structure the comprehensive notebook for your project. You can create a Jupyter Notebook or Markdown document and include the following sections:

References

Include any references or sources that you used during the project, such as tutorials, documentation, or external libraries.
Please note that this is just a template for structuring the notebook. You'll need to replace the placeholders with the actual code for each step. For code execution and visual elements, you should use a notebook environment like Jupyter Notebook or a Markdown document with embedded code blocks.

Let's regenerate Step 5 with the updated code for creating the Chatbot Front-end. We will provide a text field for users to type queries, and the responses from the OpenAI API will be displayed on the front-end web page using an HTML canvas.

Step 5: Creating the Chatbot Front-end (chatbot.ejs)

Inside the views folder, create the chatbot.ejs file for the chatbot interface.
htmlCopy code
<!-- chatbot.ejs -->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Customer Service Chat</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/styles.css">
</head>
<body>
<h1>Customer Service Chat</h1>
<div id="chat-container">
<canvas id="chat-canvas" width="800" height="300"></canvas>
</div>
<input type="text" id="user-input" placeholder="Type your message...">
<button onclick="sendMessage()">Send</button>

<!-- Add your JavaScript code here -->
<script src="/js/client.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Update Step 4: Implementing the Front-end Interaction (client.js)

Update the client.js file inside the public/js folder to handle interactions with the OpenAI chatbot API and display responses on the front-end using an HTML canvas.
javascriptCopy code
// client.js

const canvas = document.getElementById("chat-canvas");
const ctx = canvas.getContext("2d");

const messages = [];

function appendMessage(message, sender) {
const formattedMessage = `${sender}: ${message}`;
messages.push(formattedMessage);

// Clear the canvas and redraw all messages
ctx.clearRect(0, 0, canvas.width, canvas.height);
ctx.font = "16px Arial";
let y = 20;
for (const msg of messages) {
ctx.fillText(msg, 20, y);
y += 25;
}
}

function sendMessage() {
const userInput = document.getElementById("user-input").value;
if (userInput.trim() !== "") {
appendMessage(userInput, "You");
document.getElementById("user-input").value = "";

// Call the OpenAI API to get the chatbot response
callOpenAIChatbot(userInput);
}
}

async function callOpenAIChatbot(message) {
try {
const response = await axios.post("/api/openai", { message });
const botResponse = response.data.message;
appendMessage(botResponse, "BOT");
} catch (error) {
console.error("Error calling the OpenAI API:", error.message);
appendMessage("Sorry, an error occurred while processing your request.", "BOT");
}
}

Update Step 1: Setting up the Backend (server.js)

Update the server.js file to include an API endpoint for handling OpenAI chatbot interactions.
javascriptCopy code
// server.js

const express = require("express");
const mongoose = require("mongoose");
const bodyParser = require("body-parser");
const axios = require("axios");

const app = express();

// Include other server.js code (MongoDB setup, API endpoints, etc.) from Step 1

// API endpoint to interact with the OpenAI chatbot
app.post("/api/openai", async (req, res) => {
const userMessage = req.body.message;

try {
// Make the API call to the OpenAI chatbot
const openAIResponse = await callOpenAIChatbotAPI(userMessage);

// You may need to process the response if the OpenAI API returns a complex object
const botResponse = openAIResponse.data.text; // Adjust based on OpenAI API response structure

res.json({ message: botResponse });
} catch (error) {
console.error("Error calling the OpenAI API:", error.message);
res.status(500).json({ message: "Error processing your request." });
}
});

// Function to make the API call to OpenAI chatbot
async function callOpenAIChatbotAPI(userMessage) {
// Replace 'YOUR_OPENAI_API_KEY' with your actual API key
const OPENAI_API_KEY = "YOUR_OPENAI_API_KEY";

const response = await axios.post(
"https://api.openai.com/v1/engines/davinci-codex/completions",
{
prompt: userMessage,
max_tokens: 150,
},
{
headers: {
"Authorization": `Bearer ${OPENAI_API_KEY}`,
"Content-Type": "application/json",
},
}
);
