OpenAI is not a constructor

Running into issues calling the API and I am still learning here… The error I’m getting is (carat is under “new”)

const openai = new OpenAIApi({ apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY });

TypeError: OpenAIApi is not a constructor

My code is…

const express = require(‘express’);
const { OpenAIApi } = require(‘openai’);

const app = express();

const openai = new OpenAIApi({ apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY });‘/api/getAIResponse’, async (req, res) => {
const { prompt } = req.body;

try {
    const response = await openai.createCompletion({
        model: "text-davinci-003",
        max_tokens: 150,
    res.json({ aiText:[0].text.trim() });
} catch (error) {
    console.error("Error calling OpenAI:", error);
    res.status(500).json({ message: "Error processing your request" });


const PORT = process.env.PORT || 3001;
app.listen(PORT, () => {
console.log(Server running on port ${PORT});


const openai = new OpenAI({ apiKey: process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY });

Maybe? Idk, I’m tired.
