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.
Thank you for doing this - really happy about it. A perfect open
source moment - I was wondering about how to go about getting
Alexa working. But I had shared the AWS Lambda stuff which
proved useful for you, and now you solved the problem for me and
helped others on top.
