Programming help needed! Answered

So I'm currently working on a project to build a binary clock style watch. I have found a pretty straight forward and simple project to replicate. The project does give a code to upload to an ATtiny85 so that the project will work. Now I noticed that he was programming his ATtiny with an Arduino board and I assume he used a different coding language than python(which is what I am familiar with).

Here is the link to the project for more info:

Now I have a Raspberry Pi 3B+, and I have Anaconda, Spyder, and Jupyter on my computer which I have used before to create standalone programs. My question is can I use my raspberry pi to program an ATtiny85 or would I need a different board to program it? And second how simple is it to program the ATtiny?

I always programmed the AtTiny85 fron another Arduino. Like shown here: https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub/arjun/program...

Also, programming it with a dedicated flasher like the Tiny AVR Programmer (see https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/tiny-avr-pro...) is possible but not cheaper than a second Arduino. --> Go with the Arduino Uno-Route. That way, its the same price but you have a second Arduino to play with. Maybe you even already have the Arduino at home... Gosh, i have like 20-25 Arduinos in various states in Projects and on stock...

Raspberry to programm a AtTiny85: Sure, with a few added comonents, check https://www.instructables.com/id/Programming-the-A...
