CodeInterpreterTool

Description

This tool is used to give the Agent the ability to run code (Python3) from the code generated by the Agent itself. The code is executed in a sandboxed environment, so it is safe to run any code.

It is incredible useful since it allows the Agent to generate code, run it in the same environment, get the result and use it to make decisions.

Requirements

  • Docker

Installation

Install the crewai_tools package

pip install 'crewai[tools]'

Example

Remember that when using this tool, the code must be generated by the Agent itself. The code must be a Python3 code. And it will take some time for the first time to run because it needs to build the Docker image.

from crewai import Agent
from crewai_tools import CodeInterpreterTool

Agent(
    ...
    tools=[CodeInterpreterTool()],
)

We also provide a simple way to use it directly from the Agent.

from crewai import Agent

agent = Agent(
    ...
    allow_code_execution=True,
)
