Story Generator with ChatGPT and DALL·E 2

Build a web application that can generate stories from a theme with an accompanying illustration for the story

In this guide, we'll walk through the process of building a story generator app on Promptly. This app will take a theme from the user as input, generate a story based on that theme, and then create an accompanying image. Follow these steps to build your app:

  • Click on the Create App button. You'll be redirected to the app's page with the Editor tab open.

4. Add and Configure ChatGPT Processor for Story Generation

  • Click on the +Processor button to add a new processor.

5. Add Second ChatGPT Processor for Image Prompt Generation

  • Click on the +Processor button again to add another processor.
  • This time, configure the second ChatGPT processor to generate a prompt for image generation based on the story generated by the first processor. Wire the output of the first ChatGPT processor as the user's message to this processor.

  • Select Image Generations in the Backend dropdown and click on the +Processor button to add the image generation processor.
  • Wire the output of the second ChatGPT processor as the prompt to this image generation processor.

  • Add variables corresponding to the output of the first ChatGPT processor for the story and the output of the OpenAI image generation processor for the image.

8. Save the App
