About this template

An application that takes in text and converts it to a downloadable audio file of the text being spoken by AI.

Introduction to the Text to Speech Converter Template

Welcome to the Text to Speech Converter template guide. This template is designed to help you build an application that can convert text into a downloadable audio file, spoken by an AI voice. This is particularly useful for creating audio versions of written content, enhancing accessibility, or simply for convenience.

Clicking Start with this Template

To begin using this template, click on the "Start with this Template" button. This will pre-populate the code in the Lazy Builder interface, so you won't need to copy, paste, or delete any code manually.

Test: Pressing the Test Button

Once you have started with the template, the next step is to test the application. Press the "Test" button to deploy the app. The Lazy CLI will launch, and the application will be ready for use.

Entering Input: Filling in User Input

After pressing the "Test" button and the deployment is complete, the Lazy App's CLI interface will appear. You will be prompted to provide the text you wish to convert to speech. Simply type in the text when prompted, and the application will process your input.

Using the App

After entering the text, the application will synthesize the speech and provide you with a URL to the audio file. You can download or listen to the audio file directly from this link. There is no frontend interface for this application; all interactions occur through the Lazy CLI.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate this Text to Speech Converter into another service or frontend, you may need to use the audio URL provided by the application. For example, you could embed the audio file in a web page or link to it from a document. Here's a sample HTML code snippet that demonstrates how to embed the audio file:

<audio controls>
  <source src="AUDIO_URL" type="audio/mpeg">
  Your browser does not support the audio element.

Replace "AUDIO_URL" with the actual URL provided by the application. This will create an audio player in your HTML content that users can play directly.

Remember, no additional setup or environment variables are required for this template. All necessary libraries and deployment processes are handled by Lazy, allowing you to focus on building your application.

By following these steps, you should now have a functional Text to Speech Converter application ready to use and integrate as needed. Enjoy creating and sharing your audio files!

AI Query Generator Slack Bot for BigQuery

This app allows users to interact with a Slack bot, ask a question about the data in a table or request the table schema, and then uses the latest ChatGPT to generate a query that is executed on BigQuery to return the results. The app includes a retry mechanism for query generation in case of an error (up to two retries) and provides the LLM with the table info to generate more accurate queries. The table schema is only printed if it is successfully retrieved. All errors from retries are now passed to the LLM. The generated query is printed before the results, and the results are displayed in a pretty table format. The bot uses the Slack API to send and receive messages and parses the user's message to determine the action to take. The bot always responds in a thread to the original message.
