Build an Alexa Hello World Skill in ASK Python SDK (using Decorators)

This tutorial will walk first-time Alexa skills developers through all the required steps involved in creating a skill using this hello world template, called ‘hello world’. This post assumes you have some familiarity with Python (or a similar programming language) and the Alexa Skills Kit.

Concepts

This simple sample has no external dependencies or session management, and shows the most basic example of how to create a Lambda function for handling Alexa Skill requests.

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

Skills can be built either by implementing AbstractRequestHandler classes or by using skill builder's request_handler decorator. More information on this can be checked in the documentation.

This sample skill shows how to use skill builder's request_handler decorator. The code for this implementation is under lambda/py folder.

For the sample skill using the AbstractRequestHandler classes approach, check skill-sample-python-helloworld-classes.
