ROAM is a note-taking tool for networked thought, designed to create a personal knowledge base.

This notebook covers how to load documents from a Roam database. This takes a lot of inspiration from the example repo here.

🧑 Instructions for ingesting your own dataset

Export your dataset from Roam Research. You can do this by clicking on the three dots in the upper right hand corner and then clicking Export.

When exporting, make sure to select the Markdown & CSV format option.

This will produce a .zip file in your Downloads folder. Move the .zip file into this repository.

Run the following command to unzip the zip file (replace the Export... with your own file name as needed).

unzip -d Roam_DB
from langchain_community.document_loaders import RoamLoader
API Reference:RoamLoader
loader = RoamLoader("Roam_DB")
docs = loader.load()
