Flask Extension for Rapidly Developing Echo Apps with the Alexa Skills Kit
Hello Pythonistas out there, I've been working on a Flask extension, called Flask-Ask, for programming Alexa skills on the Amazon Echo. I've been working on this for a few weeks now and have a release pushed up to pypi, samples, and documentation. The Alexa service is based on its own request / response model that uses JSON over HTTP. I made Flask-Ask's API similar to Flask's in that regard with routing / parameter mapping, context locals, and integration with Flask's template system. The code and samples are available at
https://github.com/johnwheeler/flask-ask The documentation is here http://flask-ask.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ I'd like to know what people think of the API and what features they want. I'm working on a tutorial that shows how to rapidly develop skills with Flask-Ask and ngrok.io, and I'm available for a Google Hangout if you want to try and need help in the interim.
