1-wire sensors and Raspberry Pi

Good afternoon.

I decided to abandon the arduino (after I burned it :) in favor of the Raspbery Pi. The first stage is passed, the temperature sensor is installed and working. But, as I was disappointed when the search for a humidity sensor and others suitable for the Raspberry Pi was not found. More precisely, all the 1-wire sensors that I found are two or even three times more expensive than the Raspberry Pi itself.

I admit that I am new to this business, I understand very little in electronics. Is it possible to connect ordinary ones? How? Or are there some magical places that sell suitable sensors ready to use?

From the point of view of a sensor operating via 1-wire, there is no difference how the Master is implemented: on Arduino, RPi, or something else - the standard is the standard. So any one can be connected. Another thing is that the humidity sensor itself is quite an expensive piece of iron.
