Python is a perfect language for creating simple PoC projects. We will not talk about the full list of Python’s advantages, but the most amazing one is that Python is cross platform. This feature is quite useful for building embedded system applications. No need to wait until a compiler builds binaries, no need to deploy applications to the board. And the same code runs on a PC desktop as well as on Linux-based boards like Raspberry Pi.
This project aims to provide the ability to bring Alexa to any Linux device including embedded systems like Raspberry Pi boards. The binary release is packed into a snap package, which is a perfect way to deliver this project.
Short instructions to run it with snap.
