This Actor is primarily designed for use with the Chat with website GPT, but it can also be used for other purposes.

  1. Initiate the Process: Start by providing a URL and a Query. These are your primary inputs, but there are additional optional settings available for exploration.

  2. Web Crawling: The system efficiently crawls the specified URL using the reliable Website Content Crawler Actor.

  3. Data Transformation: The results from the Website Content Crawler are transformed into a query-friendly format using OpenAI's embedding function.

  4. Data Storage: The transformed results are stored in a dedicated Chroma database for efficient storage and quick retrieval.

  5. Query Execution: The Actor queries the transformed results within the Chroma database.

  6. Results: The Actor returns relevant results sorted by relevance into your dataset, prioritizing the most important information.

  7. Chat with Website GPT: The Chat with website GPT reads the results and responds to the user based on the Query.

Detailed Description

Here's a detailed breakdown of how the Actor works:

  1. Input: Provide a URL and a Query. These are your primary inputs, but there are additional optional settings to explore.

  2. Unique ID Generation: Generate a unique ID from the URL for the key-value store. This ID will be used to store the final results of the Chroma database for querying and caching purposes.

  3. URL Check: Check if the URL has been previously scraped and if the results are saved in the key-value store.

    • If the URL has been previously scraped, retrieve the data from the Chroma database, query it, and return the results to the user.
  4. Scraping Check: Verify if the URL is currently undergoing scraping by another instance of the Actor, as it could be a lengthy process.

    • If the URL is presently under scraping, log the following results to the dataset:

      2    "request": {
      3        "url": "url",
      4        "query": "query"
      5    },
      6    "status": "The website '{url}' is currently undergoing crawling. Expect results shortly; they will be cached for faster access in the future.",
      7    "results": []
      • This information will be processed by ChatGPT, and the user will receive an appropriate response.
      • Refer to the notes for additional details; a webhook is already configured.
  5. Website Content Crawler: If the URL hasn't been scraped before, utilize the Website Content Crawler Actor to scrape the input URL.

  6. Data Transformation: Once the Actor has finished scraping the URL, the results will be converted by OpenAI's embedding function into a format that enhances the ease of querying of results.

  7. Data Storage: The transformed results are then saved in a dedicated Chroma database, which will also be cashed in the key-value store.

  8. Query Execution: The Actor then queries the transformed results within the Chroma database using the provided Query in the input.

  9. Results: The Actor then returns relevant results sorted by relevance into your dataset, example.

  10. Chat with Website GPT: The results will be read by ChatGPT (For the Chat with website GPT) and will respond to the user in accordance to his question (Query).


  1. This Actor is primarily designed for use with ChatGPT, which has a timeout of 45 seconds. Therefore, we've set a 42-second limit for the Actor to complete its process. If the Actor surpasses this limit, the following steps will be taken:

    • If the process exceeds 42 seconds, record the following results in the dataset:

      2    "request": {
      3        "url": "url",
      4        "query": "query"
      5    },
      6    "status": "Currently crawling the website '{url}', but it may take a minute. Results will be cached for faster access in the future.",
      7    "results": []
      • ChatGPT will interpret this information and advise the user to try again later.
      • A webhook is configured to wait for the completion of the Website Content Crawler Actor. Once completed, it will trigger a callback to the current Actor with the same input and the run ID. This
  2. By default each URLs data is cached for 30 days, but this can be changed in the input settings.
