Weekly Update 59: DuckDuckHackathons Galore!

DuckDuckHackathons Galore!

Thanks to everyone who showed up to last weekend's Bangalore Meetup! Many new awesome cheat sheets were developed as well as a couple Goodies:

We also manged to get a couple great photos!

New Instant Answer Ideas:

  • Time Arithmetic
    Adding minutes and hours and seconds can be difficult. Let's make it easier with a time calculator!

  • Mobile Device Specs
    I recently bought a new phone and scowered the internet for specs, reviews and comparisons. Having that info as an Instant Answer would have been really helpful!

  • Body Part Excercises
    Ever wonder what kinds of excerices you can do to strenthern your back? abs? biceps? Let's help others figure that out with an exercise Instant Answer! PS: A Yoga Instant Answer is coming soon!

5-minute Fixes:

  • SimilarWebsites: Adjust line height
    Looks like this IA is slightly clipping the content. Adjusting the line height in the CSS should be a simple, quick fix! PS: There's another 5 minute fix for this IA here: https://github.com/duckduckgo/zeroclickinfo-spice/issues/2024

  • SimilarWebsites: Improve triggering
    It looks like a simple adjustment to this Instant Answer's triggers should help it to trigger for queries like "similar site to duckduckgo.com"

  • ColorCodes: Trigger on "X to Y" style queries
    Let's improve this Instant Answer to support queries like "convert #ccc to rgba", or "#ccc to cmyk"

Weekend Warriors:

Have a good weekend, everyone!
