I dig Alexa's Flash Briefing and I've been making hella skills for it. The thing is, it's missing a key feature: the current time. I don't own clocks or wear a watch, but I do call up my briefing 2-3 times a day.
What's weird is that, if you ask Alexa "what's up?" she'll give you the current time, the weather, your next calendar appointment, and some random news. It's a way better invocation name than Flash Briefing, but it's not promoted & you can't configure it like your Briefing.
So, with blergs in my heart, I set out to change this for all Alexins.
What it does
Generates a Flash Briefing feed with the current time for all four US timezones (ET, CT, MT, PT)
How I built it
Python + native date/time functions +
pytz for timezone handling.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I already got a ★★★★★ review. Hope you'll add one too! :)
