Drop in a screenshot and convert it to clean code (HTML/Tailwind/React/Vue)

Primary LanguageTypeScriptMIT LicenseMIT


This simple app converts a screenshot to code (HTML/Tailwind CSS, or React or Vue or Bootstrap). It uses GPT-4 Vision to generate the code and DALL-E 3 to generate similar-looking images. You can now also enter a URL to clone a live website!


See the Examples section below for more demos.

  • Nov 20 - Paste in a URL to screenshot and clone (requires ScreenshotOne free API key)
  • Nov 19 - Support for dark/light code editor theme - thanks @kachbit
  • Nov 16 - Added a setting to disable DALL-E image generation if you don't need that
  • Nov 16 - View code directly within the app
  • Nov 15 - You can now instruct the AI to update the code as you wish. It is helpful if the AI messed up some styles or missed a section.

🛠 Getting Started

The app has a React/Vite frontend and a FastAPI backend. You will need an OpenAI API key with access to the GPT-4 Vision API.

Run the backend (I use Poetry for package management - pip install poetry if you don't have it):

cd backend
echo "OPENAI_API_KEY=sk-your-key" > .env
poetry install
poetry shell
poetry run uvicorn main:app --reload --port 7001

Run the frontend:

cd frontend
yarn dev

Open http://localhost:5173 to use the app.

If you prefer to run the backend on a different port, update VITE_WS_BACKEND_URL in frontend/.env.local

For debugging purposes, if you don't want to waste GPT4-Vision credits, you can run the backend in mock mode (which streams a pre-recorded response):

MOCK=true poetry run uvicorn main:app --reload --port 7001


  • You can configure the OpenAI base URL if you need to use a proxy: Set OPENAI_BASE_URL in the backend/.env or directly in the UI in the settings dialog


If you have Docker installed on your system, in the root directory, run:

echo "OPENAI_API_KEY=sk-your-key" > .env
docker-compose up -d --build

The app will be up and running at http://localhost:5173. Note that you can't develop the application with this setup as the file changes won't trigger a rebuild.
