Claudia 2.14: Alexa privileges

Claudia 2.14.0 is now on NPM, with support for allowing invocation using Alexa skill triggers. This makes it easier to wire up Alexa skills to AWS Lambda functions. Just execute:

claudia allow-alexa-skill-trigger --version <FUNCTION VERSION>

This will set up the Lambda invocation policy so that Alexa can call the specified version of your Lambda function, and it’s equivalent to setting up an Alexa trigger from the Lambda screen.

It’s not 100% ideal yet because Alexa does not allow setting the other side of the connection using an API (specifying which Alexa skill calls the function), but it at least resolves everything you need to do on the Lambda side before going to the Alexa skills web site.
