About OpenAI GPT-3 C#/.NET SDK

The OpenAI GPT-3 C#/.NET SDK, hosted on GitHub by OkGoDoIt, is an unofficial C#/.NET wrapper library designed to facilitate access to the OpenAI GPT-3 API. This library is not affiliated with OpenAI and is not officially endorsed or supported by them. It provides a range of features that allow developers to integrate and utilize the capabilities of GPT-3 within their C#/.NET applications.

Features of OpenAI GPT-3 C#/.NET SDK

  1. Quick Example: The SDK provides a quick example to demonstrate how to use the API. By initializing the API with your key, you can easily get completions.
  2. Authentication: There are multiple ways to authenticate, including passing keys directly, setting environment variables, or using a local config file.
  3. ChatGPT API: The Chat API allows users to interact with ChatGPT by adding messages and receiving replies. It supports both simple conversations and full Request/Response methods.
  4. Completions API: This feature allows users to get completions for given prompts.
  5. Embeddings API: Users can create embeddings for given texts.
  6. Moderation API: This feature helps in moderating content.
  7. Files API: Useful for fine-tuning, this API endpoint allows users to upload files, list them, and perform other related operations.
  8. Image APIs (DALL-E): The SDK provides access to the DALL-E Image Generation API, allowing users to generate images based on textual descriptions.
  9. Azure Integration: The SDK offers support for the Azure OpenAI Service, allowing users to specify their Azure OpenAI resource and model deployment id.
  10. IHttpClientFactory Support: While the library doesn’t fully support dependency injection, it allows users to specify an IHttpClientFactory for HTTP requests.

Additional Features

  1. Streaming: Both the Chat and Completions APIs support streaming, allowing results to be received as they are generated. This can enhance the responsiveness of applications, especially when working with slower models.
  2. Documentation: Every class, method, and property within the SDK comes with extensive XML documentation, making it easier for developers to understand and use the library.
  3. License: The library is licensed under CC-0, placing it in the public domain. This means developers can use it freely without worrying about licensing issues. However, access to the OpenAI API still requires direct authorization from OpenAI.
