🚀 Introducing: The Xef Server 🚀

The following features are all under active development and will be released in the coming weeks.

As we continue to push the boundaries of AI accessibility and performance, we are thrilled to provide a sneak peek into the forthcoming functionalities of our Xef Server. Our goal has always been to make AI universally accessible and versatile, and these new capabilities take us one step closer to that vision.

🤖 Unified AI Model Access

  • OpenAI Client Compatibility: Say goodbye to the silos of AI models. With the new Xef Server, users will be able to access not just OpenAI models but also models from platforms like GCP Vertex, all via the familiar OpenAI endpoint. This seamless integration aims to create a more streamlined and versatile AI experience for our users.

📊 Performance Monitoring and Tracing

  • Prompt Performance Monitoring: Gain insights like never before with real-time monitoring of prompt performance. This will empower users to optimize their AI prompts for the best results.
  • AI Application Flow & Trace: Understand the flow of your AI applications and trace issues or bottlenecks with our enhanced tracking functionalities.

🌍 Universal Access via HTTP

  • Language-Agnostic AI Capabilities: Whether you’re working in Python, Kotlin, Scala, Java, Rust, or any other programming language, Xef Server’s HTTP access ensures that you can harness the power of genai capabilities without any restrictions.

📖 Seamless Integration with Xef Library

  • Familiar DSL: Use the same Domain Specific Language (DSL) as the Xef library to interact with AI functionalities. This consistent experience ensures that developers can switch between the library and the server without any friction.

Development Progress:
We are still hard at work developing these functionalities. We are committed to delivering a robust and user-friendly experience, and we won’t stop until we get there. A special shoutout to our contributors for their relentless effort and dedication to bringing these features to life.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Xef Server. We are just getting started, and the future looks incredibly exciting! 🌟
