    node-red-contrib-alexa-remote-fork (is a fork of) node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2

    This is a fork of https://github.com/586837r/node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2 which fixes some issues I had.
    The reason of this fork is solely my impatience at the time.
    Don't expect any further maintenance ;-)

    This is a collection of Node-RED nodes for interacting with the Alexa API. You can emulate routine behaviour, control and query your devices and much more!

    All functionality is from alexa-remote2. The goal is to expose all of alexa-remote2s functionality in node-red nodes.

    Setup

    1. Drag an Alexa Routine node into your flow.

    2. Create a new Account by pressing the edit button at the right side of the Account field.

    3. Choose a Service Host and Page and Language depending on your location. For example:

      Service Host Page Language
      USA pitangui.amazon.com amazon.com en-US
      UK alexa.amazon.co.uk amazon.co.uk en-UK
      GER layla.amazon.de amazon.de de-DE
      ITA alexa.amazon.it amazon.it it-IT
      AUS alexa.amazon.com.au amazon.com.au en-US
    4. Set This IP to the ip of your Node-RED server

    5. Enter a File Path to save the authentication result so following authentications will be automatic.

    6. Add the new Account.

    7. Deploy

    8. Follow the url you see in the node status

    9. Log in, wait until you see the node status ready

    10. Write "Hello World!" in the Alexa Routine node text field.

    11. Select a device in the Alexa Routine node devices field.

    Now trigger the Alexa Routine Node with any message and your Alexa will say "Hello World!". (Hopefully!)

    Guides

    These are few community guides that can help you install the plugin/module. If you find more let us know.

    Development with Docker

    To quickly get your changes into a local and isolated NodeRED instance, you might find the following workflow useful

    # Start up a docker container with the current code-base installed
    $ npm run-script develop
    # test it manually in the browser (http://localhost:1880)
    
    # clean everything
    $ npm run-script clean-docker
    
    # repeat ..
    

    Install

    npm i node-red-contrib-alexa-remote-fork
