The ASK SDK Webservice package provides support for running skills, built using the Alexa Skills Kit SDK, as web applications.

Project description

ASK SDK Webservice Support - Base components for Python ASK SDK Skill as WebService

ask-sdk-webservice-support is the base SDK package for providing support to deploy skill as webservice, when built using ASK Python SDK. It provides the base verification components and the dispatch logic for skills deployed as a custom webservice rather than on AWS Lambda. It provides an easy way to register and use skills as custom webservices.

If you plan to use Flask for your webservice development, you can install the flask-ask-sdk package. If you are using Django for your webservice development, you can install the django-ask-sdk package.

Quick Start


Assuming that you have Python and virtualenv installed, you can install the package from PyPi as follows:

$ virtualenv venv
$ . venv/bin/activate
$ pip install ask-sdk-webservice-support

This package is not installed along-side ask-sdk standard distribution, and has to be installed separately if you need support for skill deployment as webservice.
