Generate content and images for your Softr app using Open AI and allow your users do the same.
Now you can generate images and copy with the help of Open AI to really speed up the app creation process. Moreover, you can create apps that offer AI functionality to your users (like copy.ai or jasper.ai). Read on to learn more.
Generating content for your Softr app
Whenever adding an image to a block in your Softr app, you can use the Asset Generator to generate an image for you. The following videos show how that works.
Similarly, on any text field you have the option of adding AI-generated copy by providing a helpful prompt. The video below illustrates the process.
Allowing your users to generate content
You can also allow your users to generate images and copy using the AI Dynamic Blocks. Just add one of the blocks to your app and make the magic available to your users. To make this happen, you first need to integrate with Open AI, which we’ll discuss in a bit.

Integrating with Open AI
To integrate Open AI with your Softr app, you need to go to https://openai.com/api/ and sign up. Next, under your account dropdown, select View API keys.
Hit Create new secret key and copy the generated key.
Lastly, in your Softr app, navigate to Settings ⇒ Integrations ⇒ Open Ai, add the key, and save your settings.Now, you can start adding AI blocks to your application.
When you register on Open AI, you automatically enter a free trial, so, as soon as a user submits the first request (e.g. generates a text using the block), you’ll see your Open AI credit balance under Usage.
You’ll spend credits on each new user request, so, as soon as all the free trial credits expire, you’ll need to Upgrade your Open AI subscription in order to receive more credits.
