Unleashing the Power of AutoGPT Plugins: A Comprehensive Guide
AutoGPT plugins are an exciting toolset that empower the GPT language models by adding various functionalities, catering to specific user requirements. This guide will provide an in-depth understanding of AutoGPT plugins, the installation process, and a detailed overview of several first and third-party plugins.
AutoGPT plugins are extensions designed to work alongside GPT language models, to enhance their capabilities. They enable AutoGPT to access and interact with a variety of data types and services, making the system more versatile and useful to the user.
To get started with AutoGPT plugins, follow these steps:
Before you can use plugins, you need to have Auto-GPT installed on your system. If you haven't done so, follow the installation instructions given by Auto-GPT.
Once Auto-GPT is installed, you can download the plugins folder from the root of Auto-GPT directory. Here are the commands to do this on Linux or MacOS:
curl -L -o ./plugins/Auto-GPT-Plugins.zip https://github.com/Significant-Gravitas/Auto-GPT-Plugins/archive/refs/heads/master.zip
And in PowerShell:
Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "https://github.com/Significant-Gravitas/Auto-GPT-Plugins/archive/refs/heads/master.zip" -OutFile "./plugins/Auto-GPT-Plugins.zip"
After downloading the plugin directory, you need to install the dependencies for the plugins. Here's how you can do that on Linux or MacOS:
And on Windows:
Or directly via the CLI:
python -m autogpt --install-plugin-deps
For interactionless use, set ALLOWLISTED_PLUGINS in your .env file. Example:
This allows these plugins to load without prompting.
Note: It's important to thoroughly examine the code of any plugin you use as plugins can execute any Python code, which could potentially lead to malicious activities such as theft of API keys.
AutoGPT plugins are categorized into first-party and third-party plugins. First-party plugins are included in the repo and installed by default. Third-party plugins need to be added individually.
Here are some first-party plugins:
- Astro Info (opens in a new tab): Provides AutoGPT with astronaut information.
- API Tools (opens in a new tab): Enables Auto-GPT to make various kinds of API calls.
- Email (opens in a new tab): Revolutionizes email management by leveraging AI for drafting and intelligent replies.
- Planner (opens in a new tab): A simple Task Planner Module for Auto-GPT.
- [Wikipedia Search](https://
github.com/Significant-Gravitas/Auto-GPT-Plugins/tree/master/autogpt_plugins/wikipedia_search): Allows Auto-GPT to directly use Wikipedia.
Here are some third-party plugins:
- Alpaca-Trading (opens in a new tab): Enables trading of stocks and crypto with Auto-GPT.
- Discord (opens in a new tab): Allows interaction with your Auto-GPT instance through Discord.
- Google Analytics (opens in a new tab): Connects your Google Analytics Account to Auto-GPT.
- Notion (opens in a new tab): A Notion plugin for Auto-GPT.
- Weather (opens in a new tab): A simple weather plugin that wraps around python-weather.
Creating an AutoGPT plugin can be rewarding. If you're interested in creating your own, start by cloning the plugins repository, then follow the structure of other plugins. Implement the plugin interface as required, write your tests, add your name to the codeowners file, add your plugin to the Readme, raise a PR and get it merged.
For more information, you can refer to the official GitHub page (opens in a new tab).

AutoGPT plugins are extensions designed to work alongside GPT language models, enhancing their capabilities. They enable AutoGPT to interact with a variety of data types and services, making the system more versatile and useful for users.
The process involves several steps. First, you need to install Auto-GPT. Then, download the plugins folder from the root of Auto-GPT directory. After this, you need to install the dependencies for the plugins. Finally, for interactionless use, configure the plugins by setting ALLOWLISTED_PLUGINS in your .env file.
There are both first-party and third-party plugins available. Some of the first-party plugins include Astro Info, API Tools, Email, Planner, and Wikipedia Search. Third-party plugins include Alpaca-Trading, Discord, Google Analytics, Notion, and Weather among others.
