By Hardik Savani June 22, 2024 Category : Laravel

In this article, I would like to share with you how to integrate Chat GPT API in laravel 11 application.

What is ChatGPT/OpenAI?

ChatGPT is a smart computer program made by OpenAI. It can understand and write text like a human. You can chat with it, ask questions, or get help with writing. It's like having a conversation with a very knowledgeable robot. People use it for fun, learning, and even work. OpenAI is the company that created ChatGPT and other advanced technology to help make computers more useful and helpful for everyone.

In this example, we will use the openai-php/laravel Composer package to access the OpenAI API. We will create a simple form where the user can enter their title or idea. Then, we will call the ChatGPT API to get a list of domain names based on that idea. Essentially, we will make a simple page where the user enters a title, and ChatGPT helps suggest domain names for it.

Let's now proceed to the step-by-step example of integrating OpenAI API in Laravel 11.

use App\Http\Controllers\ChatGPTController;
Route::get('/chat-gpt', [ChatGPTController::class, 'index'])->name('chat-gpt.index');

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Arr;
use OpenAI\Laravel\Facades\OpenAI;

class ChatGPTController extends Controller
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function index(Request $request)
        $result = '';

        if ($request->filled('title')) {
            $messages = [
                ['role' => 'user', 'content' => 'suggest me 5 domain names from "'.$request->title.'" topic. simply give me domain names list with 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. '],

            $result = OpenAI::chat()->create([
                'model' => 'gpt-3.5-turbo',
                'messages' => $messages,

            $result = Arr::get($result, 'choices.0.message')['content'] ?? '';

        return view('chatGPT', compact('result'));
