It currently defaults to OpenAI. If you want to use something else, open ~/.uh-config.json and change current and edit the config. If you want to add your own custom back-end, give the name of a module that has a query function in it, then fill in the parameters with templates vars in the example format. Use {key} as one of the params to send the key wherever you like (postdata, query param, cookie or other header).

Look before you paste. There's no protection against doing things like $(uh how do I break this computer?). So please don't just execute its output!

Seems to work well in bash and zsh on Linux and macOS. It's not had much testing elsewhere else. Windows, BSD, Solaris, zOS etc should also work.


If it blows your machine up it's your own fault. Don't run code produced by a language model without reading it.


WTFPL with one additional clause: don't blame me!
