LegacyAI allows older Apple computers to interact with AI services like OpenAI's ChatGPT.
LegacyAI works across 15 different Mac systems, from System 7 to 10.11 (El Capitan). A proxy server can also be configured to fully customise your experience. LegacyAI has allowed Macintosh computers from 1988 and onwards to communicate with ChatGPT, even before iOS had an official app for it.
LegacyAI is an efficient tool for anyone seeking an AI-powered personal assistant on their older Macintosh.
While LegacyAI is completely free to use, it is dependent on funding for API use and proxy server running costs. If you find LegacyAI useful and are in a position to donate, please do so here.
You may also purchase a license to unlock extra features and support the project.
See the subscription page to access the latest GPT models.
Mac OS 7/8/9 was built before HTTPS was a standard protocol used for transferring information over the internet. This means that any transmissions you make on an older Macintosh are insecure. In order to enable Mac OS 7 - 9 usage, LegacyAI does not transmit information over HTTPS. Please ensure you understand this and do not use LegacyAI for sensitive subjects.
Special thanks to Alex Robb for some tips while building this!
