Python app for pulling DFES information

github logo ・1 min read


I would love some feedback on my latest app in Python. After some people in my local area were bad mouthing the local volunteer fire brigade, I had the idea to create the app. It pulls information via RSS from the DFES and websites and displays it nicely.

Version 1 of my PullDFES application is now completed.

Language : Python
Version : 1.0


  • Automatically pulls Fire Warnings, Weather Warnings, Fire Bans, and Prescribed Burns from the DFES and websites.
  • Incorporated Menu for easier use
  • 5 Second timeout if the page is unavailable
  • Ability for more feeds to be included as required

I would love feedback!

Just learn a language. Popularity be darned.

Diversity of languages and domains means there is opportunity for growth in many directions and your choice isn't that important.
