hi, for reading the values and future stuff and controlling, maybe using an app, what is the better way to do it,

learn about mqtt, or a websocket or try building a server???

i'm kinda lost on this subject,

i think there is to much info on this subject,

i end up installing node red on the raspberry, but i would like to learn micropython, so block coding is cool to see things work but not the way i want to go,

also home assistant is a bit overkill, using yaml and implimantations of all kinds,

i like to keep it to python, so i can learn more,

so i would be gratefull, to any help offcourse ;)

i really like to know where to start with this,

kind regards, john!

I'm not sure what your requirements are, but you may find the opensprinkler project of interest.

https://opensprinkler.com/product/opensprinkler-pi/

The software has a c/c++ verson and a python version. I am trying to learn the python version, so I can hack it.

The developers sell a card that plugs into the gpio bus on the raspberry pi. It is also possible to have remote stations. The software could be expanded to become a kinda garden scada, using remote embedded micropython devices.
