BingGPT command line client, written in rust


This project is a rust language implementation of EdgeGPT, all the hard stuff was done by the original project author acheong08, I just wrote it in rust, all credit goes to him, thanks for the hard work big guy!


cargo install binggpt-cli
# use `binggpt` 

Or download the binary from the release page.


You must have a Microsoft account with access to BingGPT.

Configuration (required)

  • for Chrome or Firefox to install the cookie-editor extension
  • Go to bing.com and log in to your Microsoft account
  • Open the extension
  • Click "Export" in the bottom right corner (this will save your cookies to the clipboard)
  • Create or write your cookies to the ~/.config/bing-cookies.json file


First you need to perform the configuration steps above.

If you have a rust development environment, first you need to clone the code, go to this project directory, and run cargo run.

If you want to compile it into binaries, you can run cargo build --release. After the compilation is done, you can find the compiled binaries in the target/release directory.

If you want to install it to the system, you can run cargo install --path binggpt-cli, so you can easily use the binggpt command anywhere.

After starting the program, when you see You:, it means you can start a conversation with BingGPT, press enter twice to send a message.

In the conversation, you can use the following command.

  • :q :quit :exit to quit the program
  • :more to enter multi-line mode, where you can safely type more text, or paste text from the clipboard
  • :end exit multi-line mode

Possible problems

For Windows10 users

see #3

Ensure that users running Windows 10 use this command in their terminal, with administrator privileges, to enable text colors in the terminal.

reg add HKCU\Console /v VirtualTerminalLevel /t REG_DWORD /d 1

As a rust crate

cargo add binggpt
cargo add utf8-slice
cargo add tokio --features full
use std::io::{stdout, Write};

async fn main() {
    let mut bing = binggpt::Bing::new("~/.config/bing-cookies.json")

    // send message

    // receive message
    let mut index = 0;

    // loop until the chat is done
    loop {
        if bing.is_done() {

        let Some(answer) = bing.recv_text().await.unwrap() else{

        // print the new part of the answer
        if !answer.is_empty() {
            print!("{}", utf8_slice::from(&answer, index));
            if stdout().flush().is_err() {
                println!("Warning: Failed to flush stdout");
            index = utf8_slice::len(&answer);
