Introducing the New Bespoken Dashboard: For Building Better Voice Apps
The Bespoken Dashboard gets a big update to help voice app developers with testing and monitoring Alexa skills and Google Assistant apps. See more.
When Bespoken made its first introduction to the world in Aug 2016, we declared we were going to help you build Alexa skills faster and better. Remember this?
We are happy to introduce bespoken.tools (bst for short), a set of open source tools built specifically for ASK development. The goal of bst is to help you develop skills not just faster but also better.The next day we released bst proxy. Then, we tinkered with Alexa audio, introduced a few $ bst commands, and just 2 months later offered an automatic unit testing solution. (Yeah, we liked testing before it was cool.) Seven months after saying hello world, the first version of the Bespoken Dashboard debuted, bringing you an intuitive way to see your Alexa skill logs. Skip to March 2018, and you now have an entire suite of Bespoken software to support your voice-app development. Today marks another milestone in the evolution of Bespoken. We are eager to announce the release of the new Bespoken Dashboard. Here’s a preview. The improved design and layout gives you more user-friendly access to your voice app diagnostics, not just a piece here or a piece there. The new dashboard will show you a holistic view of your voice apps, allowing you to navigate easily between checking your logs, running automated test scripts, and validating your results. Log in now to experience the new Bespoken Dashboard. If you already have a Bespoken account, you will quickly find all of your information. And if you still need a Bespoken account, we’ve made signing up easier than ever – you can now log in with Amazon. Please take a few minutes to explore the new dashboard. Click through the tabs and run a test script or two in the Validation section. We’ve tried to make the features inside the dashboard a connected experience staying true to our goal from day 1 – to help you create voice apps faster and better. As you’re navigating the new dashboard, look out for 3 of our favorite updates:
- Validation – Test your skills, from end-to-end with our validation feature.
- Monitoring and Notifications – Once you’ve created your test script, it’s as easy as a click of button to start automatically testing your skill on a regular interval. And we’ll notify you via email if there are any issues.
- Log in with Amazon – No new usernames or passwords required. Log in to the new Bespoken Dashboard using your Amazon account information.
