Verba Testing

I’m testing Verba on Codespaces. It installs and runs OK, presenting the GUI in a local browser window. I’ve uploaded a document which it has chunked and vectorised. In “Search” if I type “Hello” the bot answers with an summary of my uploaded document. However, if I ask it anything about the document it doesn’t do anything. Any ideas why? I have not yet set an OpenAI API key. Would that explain why it doesn’t answer, and if so how is it generating the response to “Hello” without connection to a GPT?

Also: in the example provided in the documentation for the “.env” file, you’ve set OPENAI_BASE_URL to is that correct for testing in codespaces?

Hi @Mike_Hudson !

I will need to try Verba also with codespaces :laughing:

The idea for the OPENAI_BASE_URL is, as stated:

You can also add a OPENAI_BASE_URL to use proxies such as LiteLLM (GitHub - BerriAI/litellm: Call all LLM APIs using the OpenAI format. Use Bedrock, Azure, OpenAI, Cohere, Anthropic, Ollama, Sagemaker, HuggingFace, Replicate (100+ LLMs))

What were the steps you did to run in codespaces?
