How to get started with Galileo Evaluate

Create a Galileo Account

  1. Go to your Galileo console page (a link that looks something like "console.galileo.yourcompany.com"). Speak to your Galileo Admin, or send a Slack on your shared Galileo slack channel if you don't know the URL.

  2. Create an account by asking your Admin to send you an invite or directly via the Console homepage.

Install the Galileo Python (or REST) Client

  1. Open a Python notebook or any python environment where you want to install Galileo

  2. Install the python client via pip install promptquality

  3. Next, run the following code to create your first run

import promptquality as pq


template = "Explain {topic} to me like I'm a 5 year old"

data = {"topic": ["Quantum Physics", "Politics", "Large Language Models"]}

       settings=pq.Settings(model_alias='ChatGPT (16K context)',


By default, pq.login() will take the user to the Galileo console to copy and paste a short term token.

Alternatively, it is possible to programmatically authenticate a user by setting the GALILEO_API_KEY environment variable.

import os

os.environ['GALILEO_API_KEY']="Your Galileo API key"


template = ...

Getting an API Key

To create an API key:

  1. Go to your Galileo Console settings and select API Keys

  2. Select Create a new key

  3. Give your key a distinct name and hit Create

Building in non-Python environments

Non python developers can use RESTful APIs to use Galileo with their LLM applications or models. For documentation and more info, please message on your Galileo Slack channel.
