Project Setup

Goal of video:

In this video, we will set up our project by cloning a branch, configuring PyCharm, installing dependencies, and building an Icebreaker file. We'll also introduce the LanChain framework.

Topics covered:

  • Cloning a Git branch:
    We'll clone a branch from the main repository to our local machine using Git command-line interface. This step is important to work on a specific version of the code.
  • Configuring PyCharm:
    We'll configure PyCharm by setting up the Python interpreter and creating a virtual environment. This is important to ensure our project is aligned with the correct interpreter and that we have a clean environment to work in.
  • Installing dependencies: We'll use pip to install the necessary dependencies for our project, including the Lanchang framework. This step is essential to ensure we have all the necessary packages to build our application.
  • Introduction to the LanChain framework:
    We'll provide a quick introduction to the LanChain framework, explaining its abstractions like chains and why it's become so popular among developers.
  • Create file:
    We'll create an Icebreaker file, which will hold all of our LanChain code. We'll start with a default function and run it using the Python terminal to make sure everything works as expected.
  • Configuring runners:
    We'll add a new runner to PyCharm and configure it to run our Icebreaker file.
  • Installing a code formatter:
    We'll install the code formatter Black, which will help us maintain consistent formatting in our Python code. This is a best practice in software development and will help ensure that our code is clean, readable, and maintainable.

To summarize: In this video, we'll show you how to set up your project by cloning a Git branch, configuring PyCharm, and installing dependencies. We'll also provide a quick introduction to the LanChain framework, build an Icebreaker file, and configure runners to run it. Finally, we'll install a code formatter to ensure our code is consistent and readable. By the end of this video, you'll be ready to start writing your first LanChain code.
