Already opened issues for them :slight_smile:

just uploaded a service for sentiment analisys

Hi Jarbas,

These look very cool, I would like to try the quote, image, and play youtube skills.

I’m interested about the Skills downloading images and music files (taking up space over time), is it possible to play the youtube file from the page, even though there is no browser open, Jessie has a browser so then you could watch a video, but I’m interested in how it can be done without another app/prog (cvlc), and without downloading. (Im running Jessie Lite atm)

The search google image skill will be great.

i could add a limit for downloads so it doesnt fill much space , give a maximum capacity (i do this for random pictures skill, only keep 50 maximum) but i dont see how to play the sound directly, would need a headless browser i think

my idea was to make a database as i listen to music, eventually maybe add an intent for each already downloaded song (so it would pay offline

thee are alternatives like: https://github.com/augustnmonteiro/mycroft-youtube/tree/58e6819a9619c4f677135f2d448f67125559c238

added vision and freewill services to main post

added proxy scrapping skill to main post



poetry skill was also improved

added sensitive info finder service

main post updated, leaks skill, chatbot wolphram alpha skill , articles skill and audio analisys service (work in progress)

You sir, do a lot of amazing work. Thanks again!

Have you taken a look at openhab? that would open a very large world of usage to mycroft…

dictation skill:

  • writes what user speaks to a text file

skill: https://github.com/JarbasAI/mycroft-dictation-skill

requires the converse method added to skills core, same as parrotskill

never heard of it, just did a quick search and looks worth looking around, but i dont think it should be me has i have no real way of testing this

why not open an issue in mycroft-skills making a request?
