Avoid saying 'with parameter' when passing arguments via Alexa?
Unsure if there is an easy way to do this. I wrote a program to search and download torrents using qbittorrent based on a given search string.
The end goal being something like: "Alexa, download Ubuntu server"
TriggerCMD is awesome, but "Alexa, launch download torrent with parameter Ubuntu server" isn't really as simple.
New to this but would love to make use of it more!
I did look at adding a routine but didn't see how I could combine that with the parameters
In the discussions here, there is one for setting up TriggerCMD with IFTTT. Works like a charm.
"Alexa, trigger Ubuntu" (I find one word triggers work best but experiment).
@Craig-OK, I've been thinking about this. None of the methods for shortening the Alexa phrase (ifttt or routines) allow for parameters, so I can't think of a good solution besides, just saying the whole thing:
Alexa, ask TRIGGERcmd to run download with parameter Ubuntu server
And that assumes the command with download in the voice field is on your default computer.
@Russ I appreciate you putting some thought into it. I might take a look at IFTTT then see if there is anything else I can do
