[New Plugin] NppOpenAI
I’ve created a small plugin for Notepad++ to communicate with the popular OpenAI (aka. ChatGPT).
You can simply select a text in Notepad++, press
Ctrl + Shift + O, and you’ll see the AI generated response, without leaving your favorite code editor.
NppOpenAI v0.1.5 is available in N++ v8.5.1 Release Candidate Plugin Admin, however the v0.2 is downloadable as the latest release (will be added soon).
More details at GitHub page: https://github.com/Krazal/nppopenai
- GUI updates for better UX
- Chat support: NppOpenAI will remember for your last X questions
- DALL-E support: You will be able to create an AI generated image
- Whisper support: You will be able to extract text from an audio file and/or (hopefully…) to “talk” to OpenAI
Disclaimer: I’m neither an OpenAI employee, nor C++ developer (officially I’m a full stack PHP developer). However, this plugin requires an active internet connection and an OpenAI registration / API key.
Thank you for any feedbacks!
Nice one. Maybe a useful feature would be to query OpenAI to upload and optimise the the currently selected text code. Another query could be to debug the currently selected text code. Or also, indent/comment the selected code. Maybe some settings to change those default prompt / reset to default the prompts.
Perhaps not a critically important point, but the demo shown is something you can do with Notepad++ without an AI plugin:
@Alan-Kilborn I am getting odd results when I try to reproduce what you demonstrated.
What is "Loren Ipsum"?selected within npp and then do
Edit / On Selection / Search On Internet. For me “nothing happened.” If I remove the double quotes to instead have
What is Loren Ipsum?selected then it works for me and a new-tab shows up in Firefox for
https://www.google.com/search?q=What%20is%20Loren%20Ipsum?I’m running v8.5.3 portable to test/verify this but see the same behavior with the handling of double quotes in the selected text for older versions.
I added a comment to https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues/9795 to document the behavior on my machine when there are double quotes in the selected text but from your screen shots they work on your machine.
I’ve been playing around with your plug-in v0.2.1, it is very cool!
I ran into a problem, if I change the model to GPT-4, there is a crash in the plugin DLL. Is there anything special I need to do in order to make it work with GPT-4?
Can you please have your plugin do this ?
Thank you for your valuable feedbacks!
I’ve just realized that I have no email notifications turned on. ><
Fortunately the GPT-4 support is already working (as I know).
There are new features on the way, e.g. system messages (aka. “instructions”), which can be useful for @sdsds-rgdsfds (recommending alternatives, see example images), or chat.
Unfortunately I’ve received some SOS/VIP/etc. projects, :( so it’s required a little time to finish these, but I hope, I can continue developing NppOpenAI ASAP. I hope, in a few weeks (days?) I can update the repository. 💪
I’ve just realized that I have no email notifications turned on.
Email notifications are not reliable on this forum system. They never worked for the longest time but recently some people believe it works. If you search the forums for “Email notifications” most of the threads indicate it does not work.
Here is an on the notification topic - I had enabled all of them in my forum preferences as part of posting my previous comment and have gotten e-mails about mentions, etc. and so they seem to be working.
This plugin is super cool.
I’ve noticed a small issue when the plugin is operated in ‘Keep my question’ mode and Notepad++ is configured to use the Windows line ending characters (CR-LF).
In that case, the question text is inadvertently altered to include double line spacing. Interestingly, this issue does not manifest when the editor is set to use Linux EOLs, where the original text is maintained as expected.
I posted this comment on Github as well, not sure where the best ‘home’ is - apologies in advance for doubling up!

No apologies needed.
If you add a comment here, more people that might be interested will see and understand an issue that could be happening to them.
But, it’s considered good form to provide a link to your offsite comment here.
@BernoulliBox Sorry for being late, and thank you for your patience!
The plugin has been updated, and available as v0.3.0.0 release. For more information see the Issue:
I’ve sent a PR to the nppPluginList repository, and I hope the updates will be available in N++ Plugins Admin soon.
@Richárd-Stockinger I’m currently testing the v3.01 update and I must say I’m very pleased with it and it’s very useful for me as it is now ! Also, as you might remember, I made some suggestions a few weeks ago and I would be very much happy if you could make them possible,. I want plugin to use the surrounding paragraph as context for the AI/NLP model to understand meaning and intent. I would very much appreciate if you implement this… I think this is possible because when I click on a text from a paragraph then on my notepad++ screen that whole paragraph is highlighted in blue. (Idk if this is because of the plugin.) And also as you might remember there was other suggestions I made but as I said if you are really busy it is totally fine but I would seriously be very happy if you could make those possible with your program…
“Preview the alternatives on hover without committing to changes
User can then click on one of the previewed alternatives
Upon clicking, the selected alternative would dynamically replace the original selection within the paragraph”
I would very much appreciate if you could make these changes mate… Thanks !
I think the paragraph (line) highlighting is a Notepad++ feature; you can check it out by clicking Preferences » Editing » Current Line Indicator section (see: top left) » Highlight Background radio button.
Idk how to append the surrounding text to the selected message, but maybe a similar setting could manage this (example only, NOT working feature!):
Besides, the “Preview alternatives” is a very good idea as OpenAI supports multiple responses. It could work like the N++ Auto-Completion feature.
However, I’d like to finish chat support (no, my VIP/SOS/etc. projects first ><), and I’ve a plan for a GUI to configure the plugin settings easier. At the same time, I’ll keep your feature requests / ideas in mind!
@Richárd-Stockinger Thanks really man ! I’m hyped up.
@Richárd-Stockinger Hi, thanks for the nice plugin. I also run into a problem when I change the model to gpt-4-turbo. Should I change something in the ini file?
Sorry for the late reply! ^^’
If you get “The model
gpt-4-turbodoes not exist” message, try
gpt-4-turbomodel is not (yet) available.
The available GPT-4 (Turbo) models are listed here:
