Chatbot Dreams & Markdown Streams: Creating React JS ChatGPT Bots in Minutes

Hey there, fellow travelers on the digital superhighway! If you’ve got a chatbot that feels about as current as a flip phone at a tech conference, it’s time for an upgrade. NLUX is here to rev your chatbot’s engine with text streaming that’s as smooth as your favorite jazz solo — and it comes in markdown!

Why Text Streaming is the Espresso Shot Your Chatbots Need

Imagine unleashing a world where each message from your chatbot doesn’t just pop up — it performs. That’s text streaming, folks. It’s the difference between getting a telegram and having a conversation. Streaming text keeps users glued to the screen, watching your AI’s thoughts unfold in real-time. It’s fresh, it’s captivating, and it’ll make your chatbot the belle of the digital ball.

The Marvel of Markdown

Regular text has its charm, but markdown text in a streaming chatbot is like Shakespeare in a leather jacket — classic with a kick. It lets you strut your content with style; bolds, italics, lists, you name it. Because when your chatbot says:

“Our plans? Basic — five bucks. Premium — double that. VIP? Let’s chat.”

It doesn’t hold a candle to the suave sophistication of:

  • Basic Plan: $5/month
  • Premium Plan: $10/month
  • Enterprise Plan: Let’s talk 😉

Which one’s clearer? Exactly.

Not Your Average Bot Builder

So, what’s NLUX? It’s a sparkling React JS and JavaScript library that’s about to become your chatbot’s BFF. NLUX turbocharges the developer experience with a Javascript library that designed to whip up conversational interfaces with personality and pizzazz. We’re the secret sauce to your chatbot gourmet, and we keep things simple, streamlined, and spiffy.

Now, let’s paint a picture! Here is NLUX markdown streaming in action 👇

        apiKey: 'YOUR_OPEN_AI_API_KEY',
        // 👇 Instruct ChatGPT how to behave (optional)
            'Act as a Nobel Prize in Physics winner who is ' +
            'helping a PHD student in their research'

    return (
