R2R was designed to bridge the gap between local LLM experimentation and scalable, production-ready Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG). R2R provides a comprehensive and SOTA RAG system for developers, built around a RESTful API for ease of use.

Key Features

  • πŸ“ Multimodal Support: Ingest files ranging from .txt, .pdf, .json to .png, .mp3, and more.
  • πŸ” Hybrid Search: Combine semantic and keyword search with reciprocal rank fusion for enhanced relevancy.
  • πŸ”— Graph RAG: Automatically extract relationships and build knowledge graphs.
  • πŸ—‚οΈ App Management: Efficiently manage documents and users with rich observability and analytics.
  • 🧩 Configurable: Provision your application using intuitive configuration files.
  • πŸ”Œ Extensible: Develop your application further with easy builder + factory pattern.
  • πŸ–₯️ Dashboard: Use the R2R Dashboard, an open source React+Next.js app for a user-friendly interaction with R2R.


After installing, the R2R Quickstart is your go to for a step-by-step guide to get up and running with R2R in minutes. The guide demonstrates R2R’s Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG) system by ingesting sample documents and then showcasing features for search, RAG, logging, analytics, and document management.
