Tavily Search

Tavily's Search API is a search engine built specifically for AI agents (LLMs), delivering real-time, accurate, and factual results at speed.

Setup​

The integration lives in the langchain-community package. We also need to install the tavily-python package itself.

pip install -U langchain-community tavily-python

We also need to set our Tavily API key.

import getpass
import os

os.environ["TAVILY_API_KEY"] = getpass.getpass()

It's also helpful (but not needed) to set up LangSmith for best-in-class observability

# os.environ["LANGCHAIN_TRACING_V2"] = "true"
# os.environ["LANGCHAIN_API_KEY"] = getpass.getpass()

Usage​

Here we show how to use the tool individually.

from langchain_community.tools.tavily_search import TavilySearchResults

tool = TavilySearchResults()
API Reference:TavilySearchResults
tool.invoke({"query": "What happened in the latest burning man floods"})

Chaining​

We show here how to use it as part of an agent. We use the OpenAI Functions Agent, so we will need to setup and install the required dependencies for that. We will also use LangSmith Hub to pull the prompt from, so we will need to install that.

pip install -U langchain-openai langchainhub
import getpass
import os

os.environ["OPENAI_API_KEY"] = getpass.getpass()
from langchain import hub
from langchain.agents import AgentExecutor, create_openai_functions_agent
from langchain_openai import ChatOpenAI

instructions = """You are an assistant."""
base_prompt = hub.pull("langchain-ai/openai-functions-template")
prompt = base_prompt.partial(instructions=instructions)
llm = ChatOpenAI(temperature=0)
tavily_tool = TavilySearchResults()
tools = [tavily_tool]
agent = create_openai_functions_agent(llm, tools, prompt)
agent_executor = AgentExecutor(
agent=agent,
tools=tools,
verbose=True,
)
agent_executor.invoke({"input": "What happened in the latest burning man floods?"})
