Building from Source

git clone https://github.com/alexrozanski/LlamaChat.git
cd LlamaChat
open LlamaChat.xcodeproj

NOTE: model inference runs really slowly in Debug builds, so if building from source make sure that the Build Configuration in LlamaChat > Edit Scheme... > Run is set to Release.

✨ Features

NOTE: LlamaChat doesn’t ship with any model files and requires that you obtain these from the respective sources in accordance with their respective terms and conditions.

  • Supported Models: LlamaChat supports LLaMA, Alpaca and GPT4All models out of the box. Support for other models including Vicuna and Koala is coming soon. We are also looking for Chinese and French speakers to add support for Chinese LLaMA/Alpaca and Vigogne.
  • Flexible Model Formats: LLamaChat is built on top of llama.cpp and llama.swift. The app supports adding LLaMA models in either their raw .pth PyTorch checkpoints form or the .ggml format.
  • Model Conversion: If raw PyTorch checkpoints are added these can be converted to .ggml files compatible with LlamaChat and llama.cpp within the app.
  • Chat History: Chat history is persisted within the app. Both chat history and model context can be cleared at any time.
  • Funky Avatars: LlamaChat ships with 7 funky avatars that can be used with your chat sources.
  • Advanced Source Naming: LlamaChat uses Special Magic™ to generate playful names for your chat sources.
  • Context Debugging: For the keen ML enthusiasts, the current model context can be viewed for a chat in the info popover.
