By default we will use the opensource gpt4all model to get started. You can also specify your own config by uploading a config YAML file.

For example, create a config.yaml file (adjust according to your requirements):

app:
  config:
    id: "default-app"

llm:
  provider: openai
  config:
    model: "gpt-3.5-turbo"
    temperature: 0.5
    max_tokens: 1000
    top_p: 1
    stream: false
    prompt: |
