Community Activity and Overview
We need to be vigilant when it comes to Instant Answer triggering because we don't want them to show up on unrelated queries. We need your help to test and fix them! Check out the "5-minute Fixes" section for more details.
New Instant Answer Ideas:
- Photoshop Cheat Sheet
There are a lot of keybindings for Photoshop, but maybe it's feasible to add just the basic ones to get people started.
- Train Times in Netherlands
We already have four Instant Answers that handle transit information. See if you can add another one in!
- Timer: Triggering issues
Timer shouldn't trigger on "five-alarm" query.
- Currency: Triggering on symbol prefix but not suffix
There are currencies which can come up after the number instead of before.
- USPS: Make sure the query only contains the package number when matching
There is a triggering issue in the USPS Instant Answer in that it comes up on queries unrelated to USPS package numbers.
- Convert HTML Goodies to use templates
Many legacy Goodies return HTML strings for rendering. Now that we have support for Handlebars.js templates, we should convert all Goodies returning HTML to use templates!
- Convert IAs to newest Spice API
There are still many Instant Answers in the repo that use the old API, that aren't wrapped in a closure, and most importantly aren't calling
Spice.failed()when they trigger.
- DogoNews: Switch to new media template group, implement new design
This Instant Answer should now be switched to use the the media template group so it can also display a picture.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
