This template performs RAG with no reliance on external APIs.
It utilizes Ollama the LLM, GPT4All for embeddings, and Chroma for the vectorstore.
The vectorstore is created in
chain.py and by default indexes a popular blog posts on Agents for question-answering.
To set up the environment, you need to download Ollama.
Follow the instructions here.
You can choose the desired LLM with Ollama.
This template uses
llama2:7b-chat, which can be accessed using
ollama pull llama2:7b-chat.
There are many other options available here.
This package also uses GPT4All embeddings.
To use this package, you should first have the LangChain CLI installed:
pip install -U langchain-cli
To create a new LangChain project and install this as the only package, you can do:
langchain app new my-app --package rag-chroma-private
If you want to add this to an existing project, you can just run:
langchain app add rag-chroma-private
And add the following code to your
from rag_chroma_private import chain as rag_chroma_private_chain
add_routes(app, rag_chroma_private_chain, path="/rag-chroma-private")
(Optional) Let's now configure LangSmith. LangSmith will help us trace, monitor and debug LangChain applications. LangSmith is currently in private beta, you can sign up here. If you don't have access, you can skip this section
export LANGCHAIN_PROJECT=<your-project> # if not specified, defaults to "default"
If you are inside this directory, then you can spin up a LangServe instance directly by:
This will start the FastAPI app with a server is running locally at http://localhost:8000
We can see all templates at http://127.0.0.1:8000/docs We can access the playground at http://127.0.0.1:8000/rag-chroma-private/playground
We can access the template from code with:
from langserve.client import RemoteRunnable
runnable = RemoteRunnable("http://localhost:8000/rag-chroma-private")
The package will create and add documents to the vector database in
chain.py. By default, it will load a popular blog post on agents. However, you can choose from a large number of document loaders here.
