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

.. warning::

These features are currently in beta. You can view the source
code in the
`Ask Python Sdk <>`__
repo on GitHub. The interface might change when the features are released as


.. important::

`cryptography` is a dependency for this package. If you have not
already installed
`cryptography <>`_, you might need to
install additional prerequisites as detailed in the
`cryptography installation guide <>`_
for your operating system.

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

.. code-block:: sh

$ 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.
