    Text Generation Web UI

    The Text Generation Web UI is a Gradio-based interface for running Large Language Models like LLaMA, llama.cpp, GPT-J, Pythia, OPT, and GALACTICA. It provides a user-friendly interface to interact with these models and generate text, with features such as model switching, notebook mode, chat mode, and more. The project aims to become the go-to web UI for text generation and is similar to AUTOMATIC1111/stable-diffusion-webui in terms of functionality.

    There are different installation methods available, including one-click installers for Windows, Linux, and macOS, as well as manual installation using Conda. Detailed installation instructions can be found in the Text Generation Web UI repository.

    Downloading Models

    Models should be placed inside the models folder. You can download models from Hugging Face, such as Pythia, OPT, GALACTICA, and GPT-J 6B. Use the download-model.py script to automatically download a model from Hugging Face.

    Starting the Web UI

    After installing the necessary dependencies and downloading the models, you can start the web UI by running the server.py script. The web UI can be accessed at http://localhost:7860/?__theme=dark. You can customize the interface and behavior using various command-line flags.

    System Requirements

    Check the wiki for examples of VRAM and RAM usage in both GPU and CPU mode.
