the last 2 weeks I jumped on a new toy project: An Alexa Skill
written in D.
It is a skill that allows me to voice control my TV receiver
with commands like:
Alexa, ask Telly to go to standby
Alexa, ask Telly what is currently running
The project and all the source code sits on github:
I created two new dub libraries that this app uses:
*openwebif-client-d* is the REST api that my receiver speaks.
*alexa-skill-kit-d* is the base class and the types that amazon
throws at when the user activated your skill.
you can find the blog post here:
Feel free to share, to spread the word about using D for this
fancy new tech.
Very interesting article, thanks for sharing. For your info, you
can directly compile linux binaries from windows 10 by using the
ubuntu sub system. No need to use vagrant.
