A new tool for building utterances

Hi everyone, I created a tool to make it much easier to define your example utterances. http://www.makermusings.com/2015/07/21/defining-utterances-for-the-alexa-skills-kit/ Comments and feedback welcome!

Awesome tool! Very helpful.. If I can request a feature add-on though, what would be really nice is if you could expand something like this: "set thermostat to {(Range:60-80,Step 1)|Temp} degrees", which would expand to: "set thermostat to {sixty|Temp} degrees" "set thermostat to {sixty one|Temp} degrees" .. "set thermostat to {eighty|Temp} degrees" And if you were to do this: "set thermostat to {(Range:60-80,Step 0.1)|Temp} degrees", it would expand to: "set thermostat to {sixty|Temp} degrees" "set thermostat to {sixty point one|Temp} degrees" etc. And maybe something like this for dates too... Of course, it would be even better if Amazon adopts your utterance expansion in their utterance definition in the first place... :) Robbert

> "set thermostat to {(Range:60-80,Step 1)|Temp} degrees" The utterance generator in my alexa-app framework ( https://github.com/matt-kruse/alexa-app ) does this. So you could do: "set thermostat to {60-80|Temp} degrees" and it would generate all the numbers (as words) in between. You can also do steps, like {60-80 by 5|Temp} I plan to put my generator up as a stand-alone tool, too. Hopefully soon. It would be great to finalize on a single macro format that all tools could consume and use. In fact, I may write a proposal for that...
