This Alexa sample skill is a template for a basic city-guide skill. Provided some data about a city's restaurants, attractions, Alexa will recommend a restaurant based on the meal type or recommend an attraction. It can also suggest the current temperature and weather conditions of the city.

Concepts

This simple sample shows how to work with an external API call in the skill, built using ASK Python SDK. It also involves multiple locale models and how can that be leverages in the skill.

Setup

To run this example skill you need to do two things. The first is to deploy the example code in lambda, and the second is to configure the Alexa skill to use Lambda.

Get Started

The process of generating locale specific translations can be checked in the localization guide.
