I wouldn’t say I’m a beginner to programming, but I’m definitely a novice when it comes to working with Arduino and the Spark Core.
Just to give you an idea on what I’m working towards: I’m using the Core to connect to a weather rss feed(http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?w=2478307), get the temperature and current condition then displaying that information in color through LEDs.
It’s the first part of this process that I’m not too sure on(retrieving info from the site). Does anyone have any helpful resources on the GET/POST commands? I believe I need to be using them in this scenario, but I’m not quite sure on how to go about it. Usually I’m pretty good at just trial and error of seeing what code does what. Is there a way to get output from the Core(like println) without attaching an LCD to it?
Also, the parsing info problem. I found a nice library called TextFinder, that would do what I need if I were working through arduino, but I’m not. Is there a recommended application for opening library files?
Any points in the right direction would be much appreciated.
