Positive News! We've recently pushed a number of updates to Skillinator based on developer feedback. Email us at email@example.com if you experience any problems.
Create or update your skill using the ASK skill builder (beta). Make sure to build any changes you make.
In the skill builder (beta), click on the 'Code Editor' view in the left nav. Copy the entire model JSON, and paste it into the left hand window in skillinator, labeled 'Interaction Model JSON'. Click the 'Generate' button to generate your template lambda code.
Log into AWS Lambda, and past the template code into the lambda function you will use for your skill. If you are creating a new lambda, make sure to select the 'alexa-skill-kit-sdk-factskill' template (this will include the ASK SDK, which is required for the template code to work).
Paste the ARN from your lambda function into the configuration tab in the ASK portal. Go to the test tab or use a device connected to your dev account to test the skill. You should be up and running pretty quickly. For additional tutorials on creating skills, check https://github.com/alexa/alexa-cookbook.
