When will the tutorial on APL Commands be posted? I have a video playing on APL and I want it to pause when I say pause/stop/cancel/exit and also play back when session is still active

Now started using APL in my existing skill. Wanted to know if there is some way I can have input boxes in my screens by using APL, like the html : is there some way I can use this tag in APL.

How can I go about displaying a variable whose value I set in app.js to display using APL?


#6

Actually I am thinking about reading/writing the data-sources.json file in my app.js to be able to display those variables.

Is there any better solution?

You could either use node.js export-require (or the same with the ES6 standard)

I require the datasource.json and than modifiy the properties i want to change. After that u append the modified datasource.json to the alexaSkillDirective and render the APL Template

Is there any better solution?

I did’t figured out sth better yet. But thats the best way to manipulate a JSON, isn’t it?
