langchain_community.embeddings.huggingface.HuggingFaceEmbeddings¶

class langchain_community.embeddings.huggingface.HuggingFaceEmbeddings[source]¶

Bases: BaseModel, Embeddings

[Deprecated] HuggingFace sentence_transformers embedding models.

To use, you should have the sentence_transformers python package installed.

Example

from langchain_community.embeddings import HuggingFaceEmbeddings

model_name = "sentence-transformers/all-mpnet-base-v2"
model_kwargs = {'device': 'cpu'}
encode_kwargs = {'normalize_embeddings': False}
hf = HuggingFaceEmbeddings(
    model_name=model_name,
    model_kwargs=model_kwargs,
    encode_kwargs=encode_kwargs
)

Notes

Deprecated since version 0.2.2.

Initialize the sentence_transformer.

param cache_folder: Optional[str] = None¶

Path to store models. Can be also set by SENTENCE_TRANSFORMERS_HOME environment variable.

param encode_kwargs: Dict[str, Any] [Optional]¶

Keyword arguments to pass when calling the encode method of the Sentence Transformer model, such as prompt_name, prompt, batch_size, precision, normalize_embeddings, and more. See also the Sentence Transformer documentation: https://sbert.net/docs/package_reference/SentenceTransformer.html#sentence_transformers.SentenceTransformer.encode

param model_kwargs: Dict[str, Any] [Optional]¶

Keyword arguments to pass to the Sentence Transformer model, such as device, prompts, default_prompt_name, revision, trust_remote_code, or token. See also the Sentence Transformer documentation: https://sbert.net/docs/package_reference/SentenceTransformer.html#sentence_transformers.SentenceTransformer

param model_name: str = 'sentence-transformers/all-mpnet-base-v2'¶

Model name to use.

param multi_process: bool = False¶

Run encode() on multiple GPUs.

param show_progress: bool = False¶

Whether to show a progress bar.

async aembed_documents(texts: List[str]) List[List[float]]¶

Asynchronous Embed search docs.

Parameters

texts (List[str]) –

List[List[float]]

async aembed_query(text: str) List[float]¶

Asynchronous Embed query text.

classmethod construct(_fields_set: Optional[SetStr] = None, **values: Any) Model¶

Creates a new model setting __dict__ and __fields_set__ from trusted or pre-validated data. Default values are respected, but no other validation is performed. Behaves as if Config.extra = ‘allow’ was set since it adds all passed values

Parameters
  • _fields_set (Optional[SetStr]) –

  • values (Any) –

Return type

Model

copy(*, include: Optional[Union[AbstractSetIntStr, MappingIntStrAny]] = None, exclude: Optional[Union[AbstractSetIntStr, MappingIntStrAny]] = None, update: Optional[DictStrAny] = None, deep: bool = False) Model¶

Duplicate a model, optionally choose which fields to include, exclude and change.

Parameters
  • include (Optional[Union[AbstractSetIntStr, MappingIntStrAny]]) – fields to include in new model

  • exclude (Optional[Union[AbstractSetIntStr, MappingIntStrAny]]) – fields to exclude from new model, as with values this takes precedence over include

  • update (Optional[DictStrAny]) – values to change/add in the new model. Note: the data is not validated before creating the new model: you should trust this data

  • deep (bool) – set to True to make a deep copy of the model

  • self (Model) –

Returns

new model instance

Return type

Model

dict(*, include: Optional[Union[AbstractSetIntStr, MappingIntStrAny]] = None, exclude: Optional[Union[AbstractSetIntStr, MappingIntStrAny]] = None, by_alias: bool = False, skip_defaults: Optional[bool] = None, exclude_unset: bool = False, exclude_defaults: bool = False, exclude_none: bool = False) DictStrAny¶

Generate a dictionary representation of the model, optionally specifying which fields to include or exclude.

Parameters
  • include (Optional[Union[AbstractSetIntStr, MappingIntStrAny]]) –

  • exclude (Optional[Union[AbstractSetIntStr, MappingIntStrAny]]) –

  • by_alias (bool) –

  • skip_defaults (Optional[bool]) –

  • exclude_unset (bool) –

  • exclude_defaults (bool) –

  • exclude_none (bool) –

Return type

Embeddings for the text.

Return type

List[float]
