I'm trying to find a solution for wirelessly pulling information off a website and displaying it on an LCD screen. The Yun looks promising but I'm not sure if it has exactly what I need. Does anyone know if it's possible to run a script that will periodically ping a site and pull information from it?

I've checked into using Electric Imp for wifi access but I'd much rather just have an all in one type of deal and I'm not sure if I could use that with an LCD screen on an Arduino Uno (it's the only one I've got right now).

Thanks in advance!

The yun has wget so if that does what you need you're good to go. You can set up a script to kick off wget.

There is also python 2.7 which most people use for this.

Okay, that's what I needed to know. Thanks!
