spare the air
We wanted to work with Alexa on a project together and thought this would be fun
What it does
To check the air status to see if wood burning is allowed in the San Francisco Bay area
How I built it
We used python, flask-ask, zappa to build and install the application.
Challenges I ran into
We had parsing problems with the HTML and I ran in a problem with zappa. I had to install lxml in the virtual environment.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We were able to have Alexa relay the information to us.
What I learned
The syntax has to be exact; Otherwise you have problems with the utterances and context.
What's next for sparetheair
This is a completed project but we are looking at other projects to do with Alexa.
