Fewshot prompt to extract succinct command examples from software documentation with VMware Tanzu example

This post provides an example fewshot prompt to extract succint command examples from software documentation. The example provided is to extract tanzu cli commands from plugin documentation.

I am working on a process where the end result is to do some automated code generation. But, before I get there, I need to create some training data, and as part of that, I want to extract a succinct list of labeled commands and usage examples. All that information is in the docs, but, the docs have a lot of other details too, its all good relevant info, but in this case I need to gather just the succinct command examples in a specific format to use for training.

This post will share an example prompt, and later I will share some more logic to automate additional steps in this process. This example shows how I can get my desired result for one specific command, and there are dozens or hundreds I want to prep while automating as much as I can. So next I will probably look at using langchain to automate going through all of the various urls and automating prompt generation and result correlation for each.
