Guidance on how to start a project for creating scripts

So, I want to dedicate some of my free time to learning this, but I’m unsure if it will work or if it’s a good idea, since my experience with APIs or web-dev is zero, but I want to learn !

I aim to create a chatbot that aids in creating scripts from software I use. The software has a RAD plugin that lets you quickly create python scripts for automation. It comes with a library.

I have all the software API documentation in .chm format and all the necessary library files.

What I want:

Develop a custom GPT (not an assistant).
Currently, it works quite well, but it hallucinates classes and methods.

Let’s say we add an instruction saying if the user types /searchapidocs:

The chat analyzes the script request and asks for the correct methods/classes from the API endpoint.
It checks against the embedded library (knowledge base or another call to a vector database?).
Then, the chat retrieves all the required methods/classes from the API documentation, cross check with the library, and provides the best answer.

Is this possible with Custom GPTs?

If so where do I start ? If someone can give me some sort of brief bullet point list on how to achieve this, I can do deeper research myself.

I am not sure I understand your request here.
Are you wanting to have the user enter a request and then have the GPT generate an automation script based on and using the software, libraries and API documents you have included with the Custom GPT?

Yes exactly, problem here is the API docs is 14gb, so I probably need to set up some sort of server and talk to it through API ? and retrieve the correct methods and classes from it ? Before I dive into this I need to make sure I’s possible with a Custom GPT action or if it works as I imagine. All the documentation is available for download not sure what’s the best way to interrogate it if its so large.
