Updating Allegory Within Pythonista

I use an iPad as my primary computer. To run Parable I use Apologue and the standard Allegory interface under Pythonista.

With recent changes to Parable it has become possible to run Allegory without changes. (Previously a few things had to be removed manually before it would run). To make updating it easier I have written a quick script that will download the latest version.

# coding: utf-8

import requests
import datetime

url = 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/crcx/parable/master/py/allegory'
r = requests.get(url)

with open('allegory.py', 'w') as f:
    f.write('# allegory updated ')
    f.write(str(datetime.date.today()))
    f.write('\n')
    f.write(r.content)
