Generate summaries

You can configure the ELITE Feed Reader Bot to generate summaries (using ChatGPT Artificial Intelligence) of web articles, and even Youtube videos!

First, open the template page (using the /template command):

Click on the link to open the template page. Then, add a new template:

And fill its content with:

The content is the following text, if you want to copy/paste it:

And click on "Add template" to save this new template:

Finally, choose this template for the feed(s) for which you want to receive a summary (in the "Feed settings" grid, click on "edit", then select the "Template with summary" template):

Here I've chosen a Youtube feed. When a new video is available, the bot will send a summary (based on the video's transcript) at the end of the post:

Voilà! Thanks ChatGPT :)


By default, the summary is generated in English.
You can specify another language using its two-letter code, for example: %SUMMARY_ES% (for Spanish) or %SUMMARY_FR% (for French).
(full list of codes here)


Use the %SUMMARY% variable with parcimony. ChatGPT calls are limited, and when the bot reaches your daily limit, it will stop generating summaries.
To view your daily usage, use the /chat_stats command.
To increase your limits (at an additional cost) send a message to @jcmag.

If you want to display %ITEM_CONTENT% when the summary could not be generated (because of an error, or having reached the daily limit), you can use: %SUMMARY_CONTENT% (or %SUMMARY_XX_CONTENT%).

If you have any trouble, ask help on the support group ;)
