PlanetScale Chat Memory

Because PlanetScale works via a REST API, you can use this with Vercel Edge, Cloudflare Workers and other Serverless environments.

For longer-term persistence across chat sessions, you can swap out the default in-memory chatHistory that backs chat memory classes like BufferMemory for an PlanetScale Database instance.

Setup​

You will need to install @planetscale/database in your project:

npm install @langchain/openai @planetscale/database @langchain/community

You will also need an PlanetScale Account and a database to connect to. See instructions on PlanetScale Docs on how to create a HTTP client.

Usage​

Each chat history session stored in PlanetScale database must have a unique id. The config parameter is passed directly into the new Client() constructor of @planetscale/database, and takes all the same arguments.

import { BufferMemory } from "langchain/memory";
import { PlanetScaleChatMessageHistory } from "@langchain/community/stores/message/planetscale";
import { ChatOpenAI } from "@langchain/openai";
import { ConversationChain } from "langchain/chains";

const memory = new BufferMemory({
chatHistory: new PlanetScaleChatMessageHistory({
tableName: "stored_message",
sessionId: "lc-example",
config: {
url: "ADD_YOURS_HERE", // Override with your own database instance's URL
},
}),
});

const model = new ChatOpenAI();
const chain = new ConversationChain({ llm: model, memory });

const res1 = await chain.call({ input: "Hi! I'm Jim." });
console.log({ res1 });
/*
{
res1: {
text: "Hello Jim! It's nice to meet you. My name is AI. How may I assist you today?"
}
}
*/

const res2 = await chain.call({ input: "What did I just say my name was?" });
console.log({ res2 });

/*
{
res1: {
text: "You said your name was Jim."
}
}
*/

Advanced Usage​

You can also directly pass in a previously created @planetscale/database client instance:

import { BufferMemory } from "langchain/memory";
import { PlanetScaleChatMessageHistory } from "@langchain/community/stores/message/planetscale";
import { ChatOpenAI } from "@langchain/openai";
import { ConversationChain } from "langchain/chains";
import { Client } from "@planetscale/database";

// Create your own Planetscale database client
const client = new Client({
url: "ADD_YOURS_HERE", // Override with your own database instance's URL
});

const memory = new BufferMemory({
chatHistory: new PlanetScaleChatMessageHistory({
tableName: "stored_message",
sessionId: "lc-example",
client, // You can reuse your existing database client
}),
});

const model = new ChatOpenAI();
const chain = new ConversationChain({ llm: model, memory });

const res1 = await chain.call({ input: "Hi! I'm Jim." });
console.log({ res1 });
/*
{
res1: {
text: "Hello Jim! It's nice to meet you. My name is AI. How may I assist you today?"
}
}
*/

const res2 = await chain.call({ input: "What did I just say my name was?" });
console.log({ res2 });

/*
{
res1: {
text: "You said your name was Jim."
}
}
*/
