OPENAI_API_KEY– your OpenAI API key (you can get one here)
BLOB_READ_WRITE_TOKEN– your Vercel Blob read/write token (currently still in beta)
If you’ve deployed this to Vercel, you can also use
vc env pull to pull the environment variables from your Vercel project.
Novel is built on the following stack:
- Next.js – framework
- Tiptap – text editor
- OpenAI – AI completions
- Vercel AI SDK – AI library
- Vercel – deployments
