    Hey guys, developer here. I created a fork from Zach's Alexa Home project that made some changes to the way modules are loaded and created a IFTTT integration with support for Twitter by using a GMAIL address as a work around.

    With that I can create/manipulate IFTTT recipes. In the link provided you can set it up to tweet something. Once setup I for example say "Alexa tweet Good evening" and it'll post a tweet on my twitter account saying "Good evening".

    Please let me know any feedback, and will be happy to assist/help. Also recipe ideas!

    The project is on GitHub: damianFC tepuy GitHub

    IFTTT uses the terms 'Recipes' to describe the chain actions you can take.

    Does this require a computer to be on at all times? If not, can you direct me to some documentation how to use these scripts?

    Thanks

    BTW - Have you tried facebook?

    Yes it requires the computer to be on at all times; you can install this on a raspberry pi or similar and just leave in the background.

    Trying to get this to work on a Mac. Having issues with getting bundle install to run. It says I'm missing unf_ext but that fails to install. Failed to build gem native extension. Any suggestions?

    Hi, can you make Alexa adding numbers to ToDo list? Right now when I ask her to add 25 for example, she adds "twenty five" instead of "25".
    I would try to add this feature by recognizing magic word "number" for example, so those who still want to have spoken number in their list would have it.

    Example:
    - Alexa, add number 25 to my ToDo list.

    Echo would add

    "25".

    Can this be done? Let me know, thanks for reading and reply in advance.
