  ScrapeChain is a wrapper around a special type of Chain that requires 'input_schema' and 'input_text' in its
  input_variables and combines it with an output_parser.
  Once you define that chain, you can have the chain 'scrape' a text and return the
  formatted output in virtually any form.

  Creates a new ScrapeChain struct with the given chain, input_schema, and output_parser,
  you set up a scrapeChain with an input_schema and an output_parser, then you can ask
  it with whatever text you want.
  ## Example:
  # create a chat to extract data:
  chat = Chat.add_prompt_templates(%Chat{}, [
      role: "user",
      prompt: %PromptTemplate{
        template: "Schema: \"\"\"

        <%= input_text %>
      Extract the data from Text according to Schema and return it in <%= output_format %> format.
      Format any datetime fields using ISO8601 standard.
