This template allows you to integrate an LLM with a vector-based retrieval system using Neo4j as the vector store. Additionally, it uses the graph capabilities of the Neo4j database to store and retrieve the dialogue history of a specific user's session. Having the dialogue history stored as a graph allows for seamless conversational flows but also gives you the ability to analyze user behavior and text chunk retrieval through graph analytics.

Environment Setup​

You need to define the following environment variables


Populating with data​

If you want to populate the DB with some example data, you can run python The script process and stores sections of the text from the file dune.txt into a Neo4j graph database. Additionally, a vector index named dune is created for efficient querying of these 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 neo4j-vector-memory

If you want to add this to an existing project, you can just run:

langchain app add neo4j-vector-memory

And add the following code to your file:

from neo4j_vector_memory import chain as neo4j_vector_memory_chain

add_routes(app, neo4j_vector_memory_chain, path="/neo4j-vector-memory")

(Optional) Let's now configure LangSmith. LangSmith will help us trace, monitor and debug LangChain applications. You can sign up for LangSmith here. If you don't have access, you can skip this section

export LANGCHAIN_API_KEY=<your-api-key>
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:

langchain serve

This will start the FastAPI app with a server is running locally at http://localhost:8000

We can see all templates at We can access the playground at

We can access the template from code with:

from langserve.client import RemoteRunnable

runnable = RemoteRunnable("http://localhost:8000/neo4j-vector-memory")
