How to Install SuperAGI: Easy 10-Step Guide


Introduction to SuperAGI

SuperAGI is essentially AutoGPT on steroids. It can use tools, run multiple agents in parallel, has a graphical user interface, and is super easy to install. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of installing SuperAGI and how to use it.

You can find more information about SuperAGI on GitHub. They say it is still under construction and still has many flaws. In my experience, it seems well-polished for a new AI Tool.

Step 1: Get Docker

The first thing you need to do is get Docker. Visit, download Docker, install it, and have it up and running.

It looks like this, and you can keep that on in the background.

Step 2: Clone the SuperAGI Repository

Next, open Visual Studio Code and click the little button in the top right that says “toggle panel”. This will open up your terminal within Visual Studio Code. If you don’t have Visual Studio Code, download it from

Visual Studio Code Terminal

On the SuperAGI GitHub repo page, click the green “Code” button and copy the URL.

Once the terminal opens up, type cd C:\ to change the directory to C Drive. From there, type mkdir \superagi to create a new folder and then cd \superagi to change the directory to the new folder you created. Now type git clone and paste the URL you just copied. Hit enter, and that will clone it to your new folder.

cd C:\

mkdir \superagi

cd \superagi

git clone

Step 3: Open the Super AGI Folder

In Visual Studio Code, click the Explorer icon, then click “Open Folder”. Select SuperAGI and click “Select Folder”.

Step 4: Rename the Config Template

Right-click on config_template.yaml and rename it to config.yaml. This is where you’re going to store all your environment variables. This is where you will put your Pinecone key, OpenAI key, Google key, and anything else you want to use.

Step 5: Create an API Key with OpenAI

If you don’t already have an account, sign up for OpenAI. Then browse to Click “create new key”, name it, and click “create secret key”. Copy it and paste it into the config.yaml file in the OpenAI key section.

Step 6: Get a Pinecone API Key

Pinecone Vector DB Site

Create a free Pincone account; it is a vector database. If you’re using a free Pinecone account, you can only have one index at a time.

Once your account is created, go to Pinecone, click “API keys”, and click “create new API key”. Enter the key name, create the key, and copy the key value. Switch back to Visual Studio Code and paste the key value in the Pinecone API key section of the config.yaml file.

Step 7: Get the Google API Key

Go to Google Cloud Services, and create an account for free. Click “API and Services”, and create a new project. Search for “custom search API” and click “Create credentials”.

Google Cloud Services

Create a new API key, copy it, and paste it into the Google API key section of the config.yaml file.


Step 8: Get the Search Engine ID

Go to the Programmable Search Engine website, click “get started”, and create a new search engine.

Programmable Search Engine Form

Copy the search engine ID and paste it into the Search Engine ID section of the config.yaml file.

Step 9: Install SuperAGI

With Docker up and running, type docker-compose up --build in the terminal and hit enter. This will build everything from the repository. Once it’s up and running, go to your browser and type localhost:3000 , and hit enter. You should now see SuperAGI.

Step 10: Create an Agent

Go to the “agents” tab, click “create agent”, and fill in the necessary details. You can add one or multiple goals here. Select the tools you want SuperAGI to use, click “create and run”, and your agent will start running. You can have multiple agents running in parallel.

Step 11: Monitor the Agent

If you want more information about what’s happening, switch back to Visual Studio Code and look through the logs of what the agent is doing. The agent will think, plan, and execute tasks based on your goals.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully installed Super AGI. Feel free to play around with it and explore its many functionalities. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please reach out in the comment section of this blog post. Happy exploring with SuperAGI!
