To help with this, we’ve created an experimental helper “meta”-prompt that can guide Claude to generate a high-quality prompts tailored to your specific tasks.

To use the metaprompt, follow the instructions in our metaprompt Google Colab notebook. There, you can easily run the code to have Claude construct prompts on your behalf.

Note that to run the Colab notebook, you will need an API key.

The metaprompt is particularly useful as a “getting started” tool or as a method to generate multiple prompt versions for a given task, making it easier to test a variety of initial prompt variations for your use case.
