Rust client for txtai

Version GitHub Release Date GitHub Issues GitHub Last Commit

txtai is an all-in-one embeddings database for semantic search, LLM orchestration and language model workflows.

This repository contains Rust bindings for the txtai API.


Add the following lines to your project Cargo.toml file:

txtai = { version = "7.1" }
tokio = { version = "0.2", features = ["full"] }

This adds txtai as a dependency as well as tokio given txtai uses async io.


The examples directory has a series of examples that give an overview of txtai. See the list of examples below.

Example Description

Extractive QA with txtai Extractive question-answering with txtai

Pipelines and workflows Pipelines and workflows

txtai.rs connects to a txtai api instance. See this link for details on how to start a new api instance.

Once an api instance is running, do the following to run the examples.

git clone https://github.com/neuml/txtai.rs
cd txtai.rs/examples/demo
cargo run
