Welcome to Stream-Query-Client


Stream-Query-Client is the easiest way to use Vectara's streaming query API in your JavaScript applications. Simply provide a query configuration and a callback to instantly receive stream updates.

  • React-Chatbot: Add a compact Vectara-powered chatbot widget chat to your React apps.
  • Create-UI: The fastest way to generate a working React codebase for a range of generative and semantic search UIs.
  • Vectara Answer: Demo app for Summarized Semantic Search with advanced configuration options.
  • Vectara Ingest: Sample templates and crawlers for pulling data from many popular data sources.

How it works

When executed, streamQuery sends a request to Vectara's streaming query API. As the endpoint returns data chunks to the browser, the supplied onStreamUpdate is executed with relevant data from the most recent chunk. You can then use this latest data in your application however you wish.

Use it in your application

Install Stream-Query-Client

npm install --save @vectara/stream-query-client

Then use it in your application like this:

import {
} from "@vectara/stream-query-client";

const sendQuery = async () => {
  const configurationOptions: StreamQueryConfig = {
    // Required fields.
    customerId: "customerIdValue",
    corpusIds: ["2"],
    apiKey: "zqt_apiKeyValue",

    // Optional fields.
    queryValue: "Who put the ram in the ramalamadingdong?",
    summaryNumResults: 5,
    language: "eng",
    debug: true,
    enableFactualConsistencyScore: true,
    summaryPromptName: "summary-prompt-name",

  const onStreamUpdate = (update: StreamUpdate) => {
    // Perform operations on returned data, e.g. update state.

  streamQuery(configurationOptions, onStreamUpdate);

For more information on configuration options and callback types, see the type definitions and our Query API documentation.
