Amazon Alexa Bot

A template to build your own Amazon Alexa bot!

Build your own Alexa Integration

In this template, you can trigger your WayScript program to run via Alexa. You trigger the program by saying "Alexa, launch WayScript and run Alexa Bot with [Spoken Input]". This [Spoken Input] can be anything you want such as "WayScript is awesome", etc.

IF, your [Spoken Input] includes the word "Hello," then Alexa will respond by saying Hello back!

Connecting to your Amazon Alexa

In order for this script to work, you need to link your Alexa to WayScript. To do this, select "Add an Account" in the "Select an Account" dropdown in the Alexa Trigger. You will immediately see a popup with instructions. On this popup, click "Enable Skill and Link Account".

Run a Python Script with an Alexa Voice Command

You can easily run python scripts from your Alexa Voice Command.
