What is SillyTavern?
Brought to you by Cohee, RossAscends, and the SillyTavern community, SillyTavern is a local-install interface that allows you to interact with text generation AIs (LLMs) to chat and roleplay with custom characters.
SillyTavern originated as a modification of TavernAI 1.2.8 in February 2023, and has since added many cutting-edge features not present in the original TavernAI.
Missing extensions after the update?
Since the 1.10.6 release version, most of the previously built-in extensions have been converted to downloadable add-ons. You can download them via the built-in "Download Extensions and Assets" menu in the extensions panel (stacked blocks icon in the top bar).
SillyTavern is being developed using a two-branch system to ensure a smooth experience for all users.
- release -🌟 Recommended for most users. This is the most stable and recommended branch, updated only when major releases are pushed. It's suitable for the majority of users.
- staging - ⚠️ Not recommended for casual use. This branch has the latest features, but be cautious as it may break at any time. Only for power users and enthusiasts.
