Plugin dependencies

If your plugin requires additional python packages, add a requirements.txt file to your plugin.

  • The file should contain only additional dependencies.
  • Express minimal dependencies, to avoid regression problems (i.e. use langchain>=x.x.x instead of langchain==x.x.x)
  • The Cat will install your dependencies on top of the default ones, as soon as you install a plugin from the admin.
  • If you are coding a plugin from inside the cat/plugins folder, to install dependencies you need to stop and restart the Cat.


Your plugin makes the Cat a crypto bro.

Insert a requirements.txt file in your plugin root folder:
