Alexa Skill Building Cookbook

Please note that the Alexa Cookbook has recently been reorganized. If you cannot find what you're looking for, try a repo search first, and if that doesn't help, please open an issue and we'll do our best to help.


These folders contain short code samples that show you how to add features to an Alexa skill. Let's assume we are a chef, with an idea for a fancy new recipe. The recipe will require one or more ingredients to be combined to create the finished product. Alexa skills follow the same model. Basic ingredients can be added together to create a robust skill. This Cookbook is a desk reference for other Alexa skill design materials.

Table of Contents

  • feature-demos are demos focused on demonstrating a specific feature
  • guides contains supplemental guides to address specific use cases
  • tools contains utilities and tools which help make skill building or operating easier.

Before Cooking (prerequisites)


  • You should have some experience with scripting or Javascript programming.
  • Review and install developer utilities from the tools folder

After Cooking (testing)

  • Review the guides/testing folder for various ways you can test your skill during development.
