I’m excited to share our first view of the Mycroft Marketplace! We’ve been working towards this for some time – see the ROADMAP: The Marketplace – and are thrilled to be able to share the first tangible evidence of this work with the community.
At this stage think of the Marketplace Preview as a “soft opening”. You can get a great feel for where this is heading, but we are still busily hooking up the plumbing to all the fixtures behind the scenes. Explore it, try things out and give us your feedback, please!
In the near future look for these features to be enabled:
- Single sign on, allowing us to know who you are and what devices you have on your account
Installbutton will push a skill to your devices (first step)
Installwill allow selection of devices (next step)
- Uninstall of skills from devices
- Ties between the Marketplace and skill settings for installed skills
A further down the road will be adding services for Skill authors to manage private API keys for use by skills they publish, OAuth, financial services (e.g. paid skills), etc.
For skill authors, this give you a better idea of why we were pushing you to use the Mycroft Skill README Generator for 18.08. This will allow you to represent you skills well in this Marketplace.
We love to hear your feedback as we shape the future together!
