    I think generally flask-ask should be avoided now. The project hasnt been updated in a while
    Theres an official python alexa sdk

    @angelusualle
    hey all
    I cant get
    flask_ask to work when doing functional tests
    in alexa developer console since yesterday
    the skill itself works
    but I keep getting a certificate issue
    even on an old skill where func tests work
    issues are popping up
    soemthing about padding signature
    steveoh
    @steveoh
    @joshcurago that skill kit sdk doesn't let you set up a local function for testing

    Let's continue to develop this project. Because flask-ask is very easy and usefull.
    steveoh
    @steveoh
    yeah i think it would be best to incorporate the alexa python sdk into this project
    the models and what not that they have published
    steveoh
    @steveoh
    pretty sure this project is done
    john removed the issues from the gh repo

    I was supecting that
    what are other people using to develop alexa skills with python
    ?
    steveoh
    @steveoh
    i was just researching that and not finding a lot of information
    It would be nice to get a comment from John Wheeler about the future of this project

    Dang. I just popped in to see if anyone had a trick / dirty hack for running a function AFTER an alexa is done speaking (so after the return statement), and saw that this project might be over. That sucks. I like flask-ask its nice for art installations.

    Amazon should hopefully have a replacement workflow to announce soonish
    at least for developing locally etc
    i hope

    Quick question about meeting Amazon deployment requirements while using Flask-Ask if anyone has a minute....
    How do you meet all of their requirements while using flask-ask?
    I am using Apache2 and WSGI along with Python with Flask-Ask as the front end. I see other ways of dong it (js, etc) but nothing for flask-ask.

    So, I've made the decision to leave flask-ask and code directly with PyCharm and the AWS Toolkit for JetBrains IDEs. It’s a learning curve (as I’ve grown accustomed to the ease of Flask-Ask) but I need the comfort of knowing the tools will be updated on a regular basis.
    If anyone knows of a way to fully run a local Lambda through NGROK (like Flask-ask) I would love to hear about it. I really liked the ability to code, run and test in real time. Flask-ask is a great tool, I hope someone picks up where john left off.

    The ngrok workflow you had was nothing to do with flask-ask, that was flask, flask-ask is a library for conveniently dealing with Alexa requests and responses.

    @farridav
    The official python sdk for Alexa has improved alot, which is probably why this library has slowed down, to use the sdk from within flask, just make a view that passes the request through to the sdks sb.lambda_handler()

    I want to wrap flask around the https://github.com/alexa/skill-sample-python-fact-in-skill-purchases/blob/master/lambda/py/lambda_function.py so I can deploy this on a server rather than as a lambda.
    So it looks from the above (which is very timely) as if i don't want to use flask-ask, but instead all I need to do is import flask then make views and routes for the functions.
    is this correct?

    Also I can never remember this, so just to refresh my brain: what's the way to grab and print what the user says? eg: if I just want to repeat it back at them? Its usually something along the lines of: request['result']['resolvedQuery']

    Hi, I am trying to adapt the Python Hello World skill sample to run on my local Flask server without using Flask-Ask or Lambda. I am fairly close I think. Flask is running fine and Alexa is hitting the endpoint but something is not right in my python. Would much appreciate if someone could take a look at this and get me over the hump. I will share the working code to github. alexa/alexa-skills-kit-sdk-for-python#62 see also issue 53.

    Hello I’m developing a skill and I need to get the username of the user, is it possible with flak-ask?

    ok so this gitter is dead... RIP :'(

    @fredzannarbor
    probably. not much harder to do import flask followed by import ask-sdk-core.

    @internetfan420
    so im using Ngrok and flask-ask but keep getting 500 INTERNAL SERVER ERRORS(on Ngrok) & AttributeError: module 'lib' has no attribute 'X509V3_EXT_get' (in my python script) if anyones around to help and care to look at my code lmk

    I searched high and low for it but did not find decorator support for CanFulfillIntentRequest. For me, it is essential that Alexa has this ability now. I do not see a pull request with it implemented. Has there been discussion regarding adding it?
    oh wow amazon has taken over ask. john wheeler I hope you have received lots of $$$ for your efforts! Well deserved.

    Anyone know what the actual status is of the project?
    So fricking weird that the most used python implementation of alexa skills is pretty much dead and no message at all about it
