go-alexa: A Go toolset for creating Amazon Alexa Skills
The Amazon Echo, with it's voice assitant Alexa, is a surprisingly amazing tool. Having the power of voice recognition tied to the web ready at any time is quite powerful and now that Amazon has opened up a developer platform it's even more exciting!
Amazon has supplied packages for Java and Node.js (tied to the AWS
Lamda platform) but I wanted to develop my skills in Go. As I moved
through the process making my app work with Amazon's spec, a simple web
framework that took care all the heavy lifting on security and crafting
the response object formed. I'm looking forward to more Go-based tools
getting created and living in this
go-alexa bucket but for now the
skillserver is the first tool.
