System Prompts

In the Polyfire-JS SDK, the generate function or Chat class allows the use of the systemPrompt option where your prompts are typically hardcoded. An alternative is the systemPromptId option which utilizes a UUID. However, remembering and managing these UUIDs can be a hassle.So you can use an alias generated from your prompt name. They provide a recognizable and easy-to-use name for your system prompts, tidying up your code and enhancing clarity.

Setting Up Prompts

  1. Access System Prompts: Enter your dashboard, choose your project, and navigate to the system prompts management area.

  2. Create a New Prompt:

    • Select Prompts > Saved.
    • Press the New button.
    • Input the name and prompt content, then save your new prompt.
    • If a prompt already exists, locate it in Prompts > Saved.
  3. Select a Prompt: Identify the prompt you wish to use and copy its alias for use in your code.

Note: Your prompt's name should be distinctive as it forms the basis of the alias and should be easy to remember.

Use Alias in Your Code

After setting up your custom prompt, you can use the alias with the systemPromptId in your code when engaging with polyfire-js SDK. Here's how:

generate("Write a hello world haiku", {systemPromptId: "my_prompt_alias"})
  .then(response => {
  .catch(error => {

In the snippet above, "my_prompt_alias" stands in for the system prompt's alias. The Polyfire API will use this alias to identify and execute the appropriate system prompt.
