What are Recipes?

Recipes are pre-built workflows that contain a series of Yaara commands to help you create content with Yaara using a repeatable process. You can create your own or save recipes shared by the community.

To see all recipes in your account, open the recipes tab in the sidebar.

Getting started

You can get familiar with recipes by starting from the featured list or a community-shared recipe. Featured recipes are real examples we've created to help you write content.

Let's use the "Blog post" recipe as an example.

  1. To start, watch the attached video at the bottom to understand how to use this specific recipe.
  2. Click "Run" to create a new document using this recipe.
    • This will create a new document using the recipe and save the recipe to your account.

How to run a recipe

Each recipe is different, but most will ask you to replace the variables with your content and then run the commands in order from top to bottom.

For example, let's walk through this example "Blog post" recipe:

[Run the following command, then move the output in the sidebar]

>write a brief for {TOPIC}

[Run the following command, then move the output in the sidebar]

>write blog title ideas

>write an introduction

>write a blog outline

[Run the following command for each outline item generated above]

>write about {OUTLINE_ITEM}

>write a blog conclusion on {OUTLINE_ITEM_1}, {OUTLINE_ITEM_2}, {OUTLINE_ITEM_3}

Step 1: Generate the content brief

Replace {TOPIC} with your actual topic and then run the command by placing your cursor at the end of the line and pressing CMD + ENTER (Ctrl + ENTER on PC). 

Copy the generated content and paste it into the content description/brief box in the sidebar. This gives your document more detail about what you want to write about.

Step 2: Generate article title ideas

Make sure you have the content brief toggled on in the sidebar, and then run the next command:

>write blog title ideas

Select or edit the article title you want to use and paste it into the sidebar

Step 3: Write an intro

Run the next two commands in order. Each of these commands will use the content preceding it and the title and brief from the sidebar to gather context.

>write an introduction

Pro tip: Re-run any commands you need to get the best outputs. When you are happy with the outcome leave them in the body of the document and move to the next commands.

Step 4: Create an outline

Run the outline command.

>write a blog outline

For each item in the article outline, place the following command below it, replace the variable for the outline topic you are addressing, and run the command to fill out the section.

>write about {OUTLINE_ITEM}

Step 5: Write a conclusion

Run the outline command after replacing the variables.

>write a blog conclusion about {OUTLINE_ITEM_1}, {OUTLINE_ITEM_2}, {OUTLINE_ITEM_3}

How to format recipes

You can designate different parts of your recipe with special formatting.


Optionally designate a line of text as a command by prefixing it with the " >" character. This will help visually separate commands from other text on the page.

>write a list of top diaper brands


Designate which parts of your recipe are variable and require user input by wrapping text in curly brackets like this:

>write an article brief about {BLOG_POST_TOPIC}

How to create your own recipe

  1. Click "new recipe" in the top right corner
  2. Add a name, description, and recipe content. 
  3. Optionally, add a Youtube link to a screen-share explaining how the recipe works so that others can understand how to use it.
  4. Click Save


To share a recipe, go to the sharing options at the bottom of a recipe in your account.

  • Private - Only visible to members of your account
  • Public link - Open to anyone on the internet with the shared link

When you share a recipe, the public-facing URL is open to anyone with that URL, but they must have an account to run the recipe.
