Searxng Search tool

The SearxngSearch tool connects your agents and chains to the internet.

A wrapper around the SearxNG API, this tool is useful for performing meta-search engine queries using the SearxNG API. It is particularly helpful in answering questions about current events.

const prefix = ChatPromptTemplate.fromMessages([
"Answer the following questions as best you can. In your final answer, use a bulleted list markdown format.",
["human", "{input}"],
// Replace this with your actual output parser.
const customOutputParser = (
input: BaseMessageChunk
): AgentAction | AgentFinish => ({
log: "test",
returnValues: {
output: input,
// Replace this placeholder agent with your actual implementation.
const agent = RunnableSequence.from([prefix, model, customOutputParser]);
const executor = AgentExecutor.fromAgentAndTools({
console.log("Loaded agent.");
const input = `What is Langchain? Describe in 50 words`;
console.log(`Executing with input "${input}"...`);
const result = await executor.invoke({ input });
* Langchain is a framework for developing applications powered by language models, such as chatbots, Generative Question-Answering, summarization, and more. It provides a standard interface, integrations with other tools, and end-to-end chains for common applications. Langchain enables data-aware and powerful applications.
