    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    @amergrgic
    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

    I know you are probably long gone, but I created a pull request with something for your feature possibly.

    Its due to the versions of pip, python, flask, etc
    Use these versions and it will work:
    flask-ask - 0.9.8
    python - 3.6.4
    cryptography - 2.1.4
    pip - 9.0.3

    Hello, I've got my skill to work. But I want to get the users data from a discord account link. I've set this up with discord. But I don't know how to get the access token on the indents. According to the Alexa Docs, Amazon sends the token to us each time the user runs an indent. However, I don't know how to receive it. Any ideas?
    Tweakified
    @Tweakified
    I fixed this with "accessToken = session.user.accessToken"

    Guys, as this glitter is really inactive. Most issues you have issues is going to be when trying to import the modules. These issues are version issues. Use the following versions and it will work:
    flask-ask - 0.9.8
    python - 3.6.4
    cryptography - 2.1.4
    pip - 9.0.3

    Do whoever is reading this. Good luck and cya

    hi. Does anyone have got time to help me with getting flask-whooshalchemy3 to work on my app please?

    @surj
    Noob question. Why has this project not been updated? Is is easier to code in Javascript or python Lambda for Alexa?
    It looks awesome but appears to have died on the vine
    andocromn
    @andocromn
    Hi surj, I can't say for sure I went looking for answers to those same questions a few weeks ago. I came to a few conclusion; releases were made in pipy but not GitHub, there are changes in the repo that are needed but we're never released, and that development work seems to be suspended. Please feel free to check out my fork

    Does anyone know the python version for this 'handlerInput.requestEnvelope.context.System.user.accessToken' or getting access token?
