Hi @neothe-one,

Welcome to the Github Community Forum!

I can try to solve your problem with some example.

Read text files with Python3.x

with open("<name_of_file>.<extension>", "r") as file_name:
                lines = file_name.readlines()
               # now lines represents a list of all lines inside file_name
               # you can parse this lines with something like this
               for line in lines:
                     # do something

Assign to variable random values

import random

value_int = random.randint(0,100)

name_list = ["name1","name2","name3"]
value_name = name_list[random.randint(0,len(name_list)-1)]
