a basic idea would be to get a webpage and put your code there. This is
where you edit your codes

Now you make a program which has
- an updater
- the script to execute in a separate file

the updater each times pull the program on the webpage and compare it with
the script file if they are the same, it does nothing. if not, it moves the
current script to the "previous scripts" folder and create a new script file

it then executes the script file (see how to execute python from python)

the only thing you'll have to do if you want is some auth if your script is
super secret
