Hey all,

We currently have a few abandoned IAs that are half-done, and needs a little help before going live. One example is the DOI instant answer which needs to use the new Spice API for it to work on the front-end. If you'd like the glory of finishing this instant answer, we'd be excited to tell the community you are the hero. Check out the old discussion here.

If you'd like to revive other IAs, check out the issues in the Spice or Goodies repositories.

Hello, everyone!

We now have some work done for next revision of Goodies templates! It's still a work in progress, but we will get the documentation and some examples for it made soon. Goodies templates will make the design/front-end process of Instant Answers much easier, like Spice Templates currently do.

Shout out to the people who worked on the issues in last week's e-mail specifically @tommytommytommy for making Flights prettier, and to @NeoSilky for improving InTheaters. Check out the other notable changes below!

Hello, everyone!

We've been hard at work on new design templates to use in building your instant answers. We're looking forward to debuting those over the next few weeks. It is part of a larger push for more design templates, styleguides, and a generally easier contribution process. If you have any feedback on how we can improve the Instant Answer process, please let us know or get involved!

Special thanks to andrey-p for fixing last week's issue of improving Nutrition's triggers!

Beer related Instant Answers - Devs, we need you!

Hello everyone!

Recently a new DuckDuckHack developer, @rHoover, reached out to us with an awesome idea for a Vermont Beer Trail Instant Answer. We realized that beer-related IAs in general were lacking, and we want to fix that. So, we asked @rHoover if he would lead an effort to build a few much-needed Instant Answers related to Beer and he has graciously accepted -- but we don't want him to do it all on his own -- we want the community to get involved and work together!
