Quick Start: Alexa Skills Kit Command Line Interface (ASK CLI)

In this article, we are talking about how to configure ASK-CLI to create and manage Alexa skill using Command Line Interface.

The Alexa Skills Kit Command Line Interface (ask-cli) is used to create, manage, and deploy Alexa skills from the command line. ASK CLI is a tool for you to manage your Alexa skills and related resources, such as AWS Lambda functions. With ASK CLI, you have access to the Skill Management API, which allows you to manage Alexa skills programmatically from the command line.

Please see the full documentation from ASK CLI quick start guide.

Prerequisites

Before installing ASK CLI, make sure to have the following prerequisites:

$ pip install awscli

To upgrade the aws cli to the latest version,
$ pip install awscli –upgrade

Pipeline of an Alexa Skill with GitHub Actions

As we saw in the previous post, we have developed an entire pipeline for an Alexa Skill using CircleCI. Now we are going to build the same, but using the new continuous integration tool provided by GitHub, GitHub Actions in order to understand how it works and see the differences compared to the previous CI/CD platform used.

In turn, we are going to use the ASK CLI v2 and we will also use the file structure from an Alexa Skill provided by this new second version.

Prerequisites

Here are the technologies used in this project:

  1. Amazon Developer Account - How to create an account
  2. AWS Account - Sign up here for free
  3. ASK CLI - Install and configure ASK CLI
  4. GitHub Account - Sign up here for free
  5. Visual Studio Code

The Alexa Skills Kit Command Line Interface (ASK CLI) is a tool for us to manage our Alexa Skills and its related resources, such as AWS Lambda functions. With the ASK CLI, we have access to the Skill Management API, which allows us to manage Alexa Skills through the command line.

If you want to create a skill with ASK CLI v2, follow the steps described in the official Amazon Alexa documentation.

We are going to use this tool to perform some steps in our pipeline.

Let’s DevOps!

GitHub Action for Using the ASK CLI and Bespoken Tools

It is always good practice in the world of programming to try to develop things that are reusable. So anyone can integrate what has been developed and can quickly start using it.

This is the philosophy behind a GitHub Action. Small individual and reusable tasks that we can combine to create jobs and customize our GitHub Actions workflows.

Prerequisites

Here are the technologies used in this project:

  1. Amazon Developer Account - How to create an account
  2. AWS Account - Sign up here for free
  3. ASK CLI - Install and configure ASK CLI
  4. GitHub Account - Sign up here for free
  5. Visual Studio Code

The Alexa Skills Kit Command Line Interface (ASK CLI) is a tool for us to manage our Alexa Skills and its related resources, such as AWS Lambda functions. With the ASK CLI, we have access to the Skill Management API, which allows us to manage Alexa Skills through the command line.

GitHub Actions

actions

GitHub Actions helps us to automate tasks within the software development lifecycle. GitHub Actions is event-driven, which means that we can run a series of commands after a specific event has occurred. For example, whenever someone creates a pull request for a repository, we can automatically run a pipeline on GitHub Actions.

An event automatically triggers the workflow, which contains one or more jobs. Then the jobs use steps to control the order in which the actions are executed. These actions are the commands that automate certain processes.

Alexa and Kubernetes: Kubernetes Objects of the Alexa Skill (IV)

In this fourth installment, we will teach you how to create the Kubernetes objects you need to run the Alexa Skill in a cluster.

In these steps, we have our Alexa Skill properly dockerized. As we are not going to package all the software components (Alexa Skill + MongoDB) yet, in this fourth step, we will set up all the Kubernetes objects of our Alexa Skill using MongoDB Atlas.

Prerequisites

Here, you have the technologies used in this project:

  • Node.js v12.x
  • Visual Studio Code
  • Docker 19.x
  • Kubectl CLI
  • MongoDB Atlas Account
  • Kind
  • go >=1.11
