There are plenty of ways to do this - but they are not really related
to Python.  What is most convenient for you will probably depend on
the tools that you are used to using, your operating system and your
level of expertise with configuring network services.  On mac and
linux it is very easy to set up an ssh server on your workstation.
You can then edit your files remotely - the method might be different
depending on your operating system, unless you use something like
Emacs - and also execute them remotely.
