Yes there have been some people here who use Prefect to back an app. You have a REST API that then gets hit and triggers a new flow run for example. You can also have background processes running with Prefect

Like you build the API and you can create a flow with
You would need to poll like every minute or something to check the state of that dependency from inside a task
Otherwise you can make the flow event driven. For example, S3 bucket -> lambda -> create Prefect flow
