    How do I get specific values from a rss feed

    Thank you for your reply Funce! I will check out xml parsing in python right away! I also had no idea I had to worry about security, so I really apreciate you told me that! Even though there won't be any valuable information on that Raspberry Pi, securing it seemes like a good idea! Thanks again for your aid.
  2. Hi! First of all, I have very little experience with xml and I just learned yesterday about RSS feeds, so please simplify your answers if you are willing to help me. I did only read that rss uses the xml format, and apologise if I've posted this in the wrong place. I am trying to recreate an actual earth environment by using a raspberry pi that reads a RSS feed from a forecast site, which again is hooked up to an Arduino. The feed I am using is from bbc weather: https://weather-broker-cdn.api.bbci.co.uk/en/forecast/rss/3day/2525068 How can I pull certain values (temp, humidity, sunrise, and sundown) from the feed that can be stored as variables in a python code? Are there better ways of getting these values than using rss? I am not asking for help creating the code, I just wonder what options I have to research and learn to make this work. I apreciate any ideas or suggestions. This is only for private use and does not need to be the best or most complex solution, only a working one as I have to learn python as well. I do have experience with c# in case there are solutions more suited using that.
