Data Connectors (LlamaHub)#

Concept#

A data connector (aka Reader) ingest data from different data sources and data formats into a simple Document representation (text and simple metadata).

Tip

Once you've ingested your data, you can build an Index on top, ask questions using a Query Engine, and have a conversation using a Chat Engine.

LlamaHub#

Our data connectors are offered through LlamaHub ๐Ÿฆ™. LlamaHub is an open-source repository containing data loaders that you can easily plug and play into any LlamaIndex application.

Usage Pattern#

Get started with:

from llama_index.core import download_loader

from llama_index.readers.google import GoogleDocsReader

loader = GoogleDocsReader()
documents = loader.load_data(document_ids=[...])

See the full usage pattern guide for more details.
