Steps to Implement ChatGPT in a Django Application using API

Integrating ChatGPT into a Django web application allows you to build interactive chat interfaces and provide dynamic conversational experiences to users. Let’s see the overall steps in summary:

  • Setting up the Django Project.
  • Define a Django view that handles the chat functionality.
  • Configure Django’s URL routing to connect the chat view to a specific URL pattern.
  • Designing the User Interface.
  • Testing and Running the Application.

Implement ChatGPT in a Django Application

Basic Setup 

Install Django using pip, and Create a new Django project. Made changes in, mention your templates folder in TEMPLATES.


Folder Structure  Creating the Chat View

The code consists of two functions: query_view and get_completion.

  • query_view is a view function that handles the HTTP requests made to the associated endpoint. When a POST request is received, it extracts the prompt from the request data, calls the get_completion function to generate a completion based on the prompt, and returns the completion as a JSON response. For GET requests, it renders the ‘index.html’ template.
  • get_completion is a function responsible for generating a completion based on a given prompt using the OpenAI API. It makes a request to the OpenAI API’s Completion endpoint, specifying the prompt, maximum tokens, engine, temperature, and other parameters. It retrieves the generated completion from the API response and returns it as the output of the function.


from django.shortcuts import render
from django.http import JsonResponse
import openai
openai.api_key = 'YOUR_API_KEY'
def get_completion(prompt):
    query = openai.Completion.create(
    response = query.choices[0].text
    return response
def query_view(request):
    if request.method == 'POST':
        prompt = request.POST.get('prompt')
        response = get_completion(prompt)
        return JsonResponse({'response': response})
    return render(request, 'index.html') Setting up URLs

This code sets up two URL patterns: one for the admin site and another for the root URL, and another which is associated with the query_view function in the views module.


from django.contrib import admin
from django.urls import path
from . import views
urlpatterns = [
    path('', views.query_view, name='query'),

template/ Creating User Interface

Create an HTML template for the chat interface using HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap, and Set up the necessary JavaScript and AJAX code to handle user interaction.


<!-- query.html -->

        $(document).ready(function() {
            // Send the form on enter keypress and avoid if shift is pressed
            $('#prompt').keypress(function(event) {
                if (event.keyCode === 13 && !event.shiftKey) {
            $('form').on('submit', function(event) {
            // get the CSRF token from the cookie
            var csrftoken = Cookies.get('csrftoken');
            // set the CSRF token in the AJAX headers
                headers: { 'X-CSRFToken': csrftoken }
                // Get the prompt
                var prompt = $('#prompt').val();
                var dateTime = new Date();
                var time = dateTime.toLocaleTimeString();
                // Add the prompt to the response div
                $('#response').append('<p>('+ time + ') <i class="bi bi-person"></i>: ' + prompt + '</p>');
                // Clear the prompt
                    url: '/',
                    type: 'POST',
                    data: {prompt: prompt},
                    dataType: 'json',
                    success: function(data) {
                        $('#response').append('<p>('+ time + ') <i class="bi bi-robot"></i>: ' + data.response + '</p>');
    <div class="container p-3">
        <h3>ChatGPT Clone</h3>
        <div class="mb-3">
            <form method="post">
                {% csrf_token %}
                <label for="prompt" class="form-label"><strong>Prompt: </strong></label>
                <textarea class="form-control" type="textarea" id="prompt" name="prompt" rows="3"></textarea>
                <button class="btn btn-primary" type="submit">Submit</button>
        <div class="mb-3">
            <div class="container border overflow-auto h-50" id="response"></div>
