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.
Hi Laeeth, thanks again for your post about aws lambda + D -
wouldn't have thought about this whole thing otherwise.
I wanted to ask you if you thought about using another platform
but nodejs wrap the D exe in lambda. They support java and C#
aswell. I was wondering if it is a performance difference to use
them instead ?!
Looking forward to your input.
