How to Use OpenAI API in ReactJS to Create a Text Summarization Tool


In this tutorial, we'll learn how to harness the power of OpenAI's API to create a text summarization tool using ReactJS. By the end of this guide, you'll have a fully functional application that can condense long passages of text into concise summaries. We'll be utilizing Tailwind CSS to style our application and make it visually appealing. So, let's dive in and start building!


Step 1: Setting Up the React Project First, open your terminal and navigate to the directory where you want to create your project. Run the following command to create a new React project with Tailwind CSS:


Step 2: Installing and Configuring Tailwind CSS Now, let's install Tailwind CSS as a dev dependency. In your terminal, run:


Next, replace the contents of your tailwind.config.js file with the following:


Open your src/index.css file and replace its contents with:


Step 3: Creating the User Interface Let's start building our application's user interface. We'll be using pre-built components from Tailwind CSS to speed up the process.

Replace the contents of your src/App.js file with the following code:


Step 4: Integrating the OpenAI API Now, let's connect our application with the OpenAI API to generate the summaries. Add the following code inside the handleSummarize function:


Make sure to replace 'YOUR_API_KEY' with your actual OpenAI API key.

Step 5: Testing the Summarization Tool Start your React application by running npm start in your terminal. Open your browser and navigate to http://localhost:3000. You should see your summarization tool up and running!

Try pasting a long passage of text into the text area and click the "Summarize" button. The OpenAI API will process the text and generate a concise summary, which will be displayed below.

Conclusion: Congratulations! You've successfully created a text summarization tool using ReactJS and the OpenAI API. This tutorial demonstrates the power of combining AI with web development to create useful applications.
