How should I include examples?

To enhance the clarity and usability of your model and prompt, incorporating examples directly into the JSON schema extra of your Pydantic model is highly recommended. This approach not only streamlines the integration of practical examples but also ensures that they are easily accessible and understandable within the context of your model's schema.

import openai
import instructor
from typing import Iterable
from pydantic import BaseModel, Field, ConfigDict

client = instructor.from_openai(openai.OpenAI())
