I wanted to be able to ask Alexa, "How many home runs have the Cubs hit this season?"
What it does
Provides more advanced MLB statistics than Alexa provides OOTB
How I built it
NodeJS application that calls the MySportsFeed API
Challenges I ran into
Parsing response from MySportsFeed Different times of the year for "current" season (resetting stats for the playoffs)
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to work with regular season, playoff statistics, etc.
What I learned
What's next for Dingers
- Make the skill adaptable for multiple teams
- Allow a user to save a favorite team
- Allow a user to use more statistics than just home runs
