Skill Configuration

Each skill will have its own config file usually located at ~/.local/share/mycroft/skills/<skill_id>/settings.json

Skill settings provide the ability for users to configure a Skill using the command line or a web-based interface.

This is often used to:

  • Change default behaviors - such as the sound used for users alarms.
  • Authenticate with external services - such as Spotify
  • Enter longer data as text rather than by voice - such as the IP address and token of the user's Home Assistant server.

Skill settings are completely optional.

Refer to each skill repository for valid configuration values.
