Dialogflow Fulfillment: Importer Sample

A simple sample showing how to use Dialogflow's Importer for Alexa Skills to import a Alexa Skill to Dialogflow, deploy it to the Google Assistant developer platform, Actions on Google, and export the Dialogflow agent back to Amazon's Alexa Skill Kit platform.

Check out this for a comprehensive walkthrough.

This sample is divided into two parts: skill and dialogflow directories.

  • The skill directory has all the files for deployment and fulfillment of a simple Alexa Skill that responds to a single query for the most popular videos on YouTube. When deployed properly to Lambda and Alexa, the Alexa Skill responds with the 5 most popular YouTube videos in the United States at the time.
  • The dialogflow directory contains all the Alexa Skill's files imported into Dialogflow. These include the Dialogflow agent exported to a zip file and fulfillment designed to be hosted on Cloud Functions for Firebase.
