    So what is the difference between request and urllib.request?

    Same library, just different collections?

    Wow @TutorialDoctor. Just down loaded and ran the Web Browser tutorial. Very Nice.

    Well that works pretty good @JonB.

    I just learned how to transfer up a GIST.

    First test:

    How do we download a ZIP file?

    Backticks?

    Ok, let's give it a try.

    Here is a simple working version of your suggestion.

    I like the 'wb' switch.

    import requests
    
    print()
    
    destpath = 'ex24file.txt'
    url = "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grrrr/py/741ba0500bc49e8f6268f02d23e461649e8d457b/scripts/buffer.py"
    
    with open(destpath,'wb') as file:
        file.write(requests.get(url).content)

    Well, that works modestly well. It downloaded both sample files for this Google code jam problem.

    Revised version.

    Makes a Downliad file in Documents.
    Puts download file there

    import console
    import dialogs
    import appex
    import os.path
    import urllib.request, urllib

    #Make a downloads directory
    os.chdir(os.path.expanduser('~'))
    os.chdir(os.path.join(os.getcwd(),'Documents'))

    test = os.path.isdir('Downloads')
    print(test)

    if test == False:
    print('Downloads created')
    os.makedirs('Downloads')
    else:
    print('Downloads exists')

    print('Change dir to Downloads')

    os.chdir(os.path.join(os.getcwd(),'Downloads'))

    #Test if running as extenstion
    test = appex.is_running_extension()

    if test == True:
    filein = appex.get_url()
    else:
    myrun = dialogs.alert('Manual entry?', '','Enter manual URL',"Dummy")

    if myrun == 1:
    filein = input("Enter the URL address of file to get:")

    else:
    filein = "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grrrr/py/741ba0500bc49e8f6268f02d23e461649e8d457b/scripts/buffer.py"

    fileparse = urllib.parse.urlparse(filein)
    filepath,filename = os.path.split(fileparse.path)

    fin = urllib.request.urlopen(filein)

    fout = open(filename,'w')

    fout.truncate()

    bytemyfile = fin.read()
    myfile = bytemyfile.decode("utf-8")
    fout.write(myfile)
    print (myfile)

    fin.close()
    fout.close()

    Latest version,

    • Uses APPEX.
      -- If running as a script, gets the file name from APPEX.
      -- So navigate to file and invoke script.
      -- No checking for the appropriate type of file.

    • If not run as a script
      -- Allow manual entry of entire file path.
      -- Alterbative is to use the dummy test url

    • I suppose I should make a 'download' directory and put the files in there, just below the root.

    import console
    import dialogs
    import appex
    import os.path
    import urllib.request, urllib

    test = appex.is_running_extension()

    if test == True:
    filein = appex.get_url()
    else:
    myrun = dialogs.alert('Manual entry?', '','Enter manual URL',"Dummy")
    if myrun == 1:
    filein = input("Enter the URL address of file to get:")

    else:
        filein = "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grrrr/py/741ba0500bc49e8f6268f02d23e461649e8d457b/scripts/buffer.py"
    

    fileparse = urllib.parse.urlparse(filein)
    filepath,filename = os.path.split(fileparse.path)

    fin = urllib.request.urlopen(filein)

    fout = open(filename,'w')

    fout.truncate()

    bytemyfile = fin.read()
    myfile = bytemyfile.decode("utf-8")
    fout.write(myfile)
    print (myfile)

    fin.close()
    fout.close()

    Ok, I will have to try that. @lukaskollmer

    How about this:
    If I navigate to the file in Safari.
    I can run a script.
    Using APPEX will give me the URL

    import appex
    
    r = appex.get_url()
    
    print(r)
    

    Now I just need to put that url into the command.

Internal error.

Oops! Looks like something went wrong!
