Getting Started

Quickstart Tutorial

Getting up and running with Humanloop is quick and easy. This guide will run you through creating and managing your first Prompt in a few minutes.

Get Started

Create a Prompt File

When you first open Humanloop you’ll see your File navigation on the left. Click ‘+ New’ and create a Prompt.

In the sidebar, rename this file to “Comedian Bot” now or later.

Create the Prompt template in the Editor

The left hand side of the screen defines your Prompt – the parameters such as model, temperature and template. The right hand side is a single chat session with this Prompt.

Click the “+ Message” button within the chat template to add a system message to the chat template.

Add the following templated message to the chat template.

You are a funny comedian. Write a joke about {{topic}}.

This message forms the chat template. It has an input slot called topic (surrounded by two curly brackets) for an input value that is provided each time you call this Prompt.

On the right hand side of the page, you’ll now see a box in the Inputs section for topic.

  1. Add a value for topic e.g. music, jogging, whatever
  2. Click Run in the bottom right of the page

This will call OpenAI’s model and return the assistant response. Feel free to try other values, the model is very funny.

You now have a first version of your prompt that you can use.

Commit your first version of this Prompt

  1. Click the Commit button
  2. Put “initial version” in the commit message field
  3. Click Commit

View the logs

Under the Prompt File, click ‘Logs’ to view all the generations from this Prompt

Click on a row to see the details of what version of the prompt generated it. From here you can give feedback to that generation, see performance metrics, open up this example in the Editor, or add this log to a dataset.

Next Steps

Well done! You’ve now created your first Prompt. If you look around it might seem a bit empty at the moment.
