You.com Search

The you.com API is a suite of tools designed to help developers ground the output of LLMs in the most recent, most accurate, most relevant information that may not have been included in their training dataset.

Setup

The tool lives in the langchain-community package.

You also need to set your you.com API key.

%pip install --upgrade --quiet langchain-community
import os

os.environ["YDC_API_KEY"] = ""

# For use in Chaining section
os.environ["OPENAI_API_KEY"] = ""

## ALTERNATIVE: load YDC_API_KEY from a .env file

# !pip install --quiet -U python-dotenv
# import dotenv
# dotenv.load_dotenv()

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()

Tool Usage

from langchain_community.tools.you import YouSearchTool
from langchain_community.utilities.you import YouSearchAPIWrapper

api_wrapper = YouSearchAPIWrapper(num_web_results=1)
tool = YouSearchTool(api_wrapper=api_wrapper)

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.
