ASK SMAPI SDK - Alexa Skills Management API Node.js Library

ask-smapi-sdk is a library for Alexa Skills Kit's Skill Management APIs (SMAPI). Learn more about SMAPI by reviewing the SMAPI documentation.

Getting Started

Install NPM and the ASK CLI

  1. Install NPM using the instructions provided here. This is needed to get started with the ASK CLI, which will be used to generate Login with Amazon tokens you will need to access SMAPI.
  2. Install ask-cli.

Generate LWA (Login with Amazon) Keys

  1. Create a new security profile for your Amazon Developer account by following the instructions provided here. This will generate Client ID and Client Secret keys.
  2. Using the ASK CLI, run: ask util generate-lwa-tokens --client-id <Client ID> --client-confirmation <Client Secrect>. Replace the <Client ID> and <Client Secrect> with the Client ID and Client Secret keys from the previous step. This will return the following JSON with a Refresh Token:
{
  "access_token": "ACCESS_TOKEN",
  "refresh_token": "REFRESH_TOKEN",
  "token_type": "bearer",
  "expires_in": 3600,
  "expires_at": "2019-11-19T20:25:06.584Z"
}

Usage Examples

Install ASK SMAPI SDK from NPM

$ npm install ask-smapi-sdk

Configure SMAPI Client

Using the Client ID, Client Secret and Refresh Token retrieved in the previous step to configure a new SMAPI client:

For Node.js

const Alexa = require('ask-smapi-sdk');

// specify the refreshTokenConfig with clientId, clientSecret and refreshToken generated in the previous step
const refreshTokenConfig = {
    clientId,
    clientSecret, 
    refreshToken
}
const smapiClient = new Alexa.StandardSmapiClientBuilder()
    .withRefreshTokenConfig(refreshTokenConfig)
    .client();

For typescript

import * as Alexa from 'ask-smapi-sdk';

// specify the refreshTokenConfig with clientId, clientSecret and refreshToken generated in the previous step
const refreshTokenConfig : Alexa.RefreshTokenConfig = {
    clientId,
    clientSecret, 
    refreshToken
}
const smapiClient = new Alexa.StandardSmapiClientBuilder()
    .withRefreshTokenConfig(refreshTokenConfig)
    .client();

List Skills

# To only retrieve response body
smapiClient.listSkillsForVendorV1(vendorId)
    .then((response) => {
        console.log(JSON.stringify(response));
    })
    .catch((err) => {
        console.log(err.message);
        console.log(JSON.stringify(err.response));
    });
    
# To include response header and status code
smapiClient.callListSkillsForVendorV1(vendorId)
    .then((response) => {
        console.log(response.header);
    })
    .catch((err) => {
        console.log(err.message);
        console.log(JSON.stringify(err.response));
    });

Get Skill Manifest

smapiClient.getSkillManifestV1(skillId, stage)
    .then((response) => {
        console.log(JSON.stringify(response));
    })
    .catch((err) => {
        console.log(err.message);
        console.log(JSON.stringify(err.response));
    });
