How to Install Auto-GPT: Easy Guide

Auto-GPT is a revolutionary open-source application that leverages the power of GPT-4, the latest iteration of the renowned Generative Pre-trained Transformer AI. Designed to act autonomously with minimal human intervention, AutoGPT has the unique ability to self-prompt, enabling it to efficiently handle a wide range of tasks across various domains. In this guide, we'll explore the core features of Auto-GPT, and discuss how it's transforming the AI landscape by offering a versatile, user-friendly solution for both beginners and experts alike.


How to Install Auto-GPT

Step 1: Set the Stage with Python and Git

To harness the power of Auto-GPT, we must first prepare our system with Python and Git.

Download and install Python from the official website (opens in a new tab). For Windows users, don't forget to tick the "Add python.exe to PATH" option during installation.

Acquire Git for Windows from the Git website (opens in a new tab), or Mac users can opt for the Git installer (opens in a new tab) or use Homebrew.

Install Homebrew by running the command below in your terminal:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

Next, install Git using Homebrew with this command:

brew install git

Step 2: Welcome Auto-GPT and its Dependencies

Navigate to the Auto-GPT GitHub repository (opens in a new tab), click on the green "Code" button, and copy the provided link.

Create an empty folder for Auto-GPT and open your terminal or CMD. Use the cd command to access the folder and run the git clone command with the copied link:

git clone

Alternatively, download the latest stable release's source code (zip) (opens in a new tab) and unzip it in the empty folder.

Now, navigate to the downloaded repository directory with:

cd Auto-GPT

Install the necessary dependencies using:

pip install -r requirements.txt

If you encounter "pip: command not found," create and activate a virtual environment before rerunning the command.

Step 3: Configure Auto-GPT for Success

Locate the .env.template file in the Auto-GPT folder, rename it to .env, and open it with a text editor. If the file is hidden, press Command+Shift+Dot on Mac to reveal it.

Find the OpenAI section and log in to your OpenAI account to generate your API keys. Save your secret API key, as it won't be shown again.

Paste your API key after OPENAI_API_KEY= in the text editor without quotes or spaces. Save and close the .env file.

Congratulations! Your API Keys are now configured.

Launch Auto-GPT and Unleash Its Potential

Initiate Auto-GPT by running the following command in your terminal:

python -m autogpt

Authorize commands, exit the program, or provide AI feedback using the options displayed.

Now, get ready to explore Auto-GPT's capabilities. Assign your AI a name, role, and up to five goals.
