    Does anyone know is this will be implemented in Prefect anytime soon?https://docs.prefect.io/core/PINs/PIN-14-Listener-Flows-2.html How do people currently handle event-based flows I wonder? 🤔

    AFAIK there are not immediate plans to work on this in the near future, it still isn't clear what the best path forward is. Right now you'd need some kind of external source to listen for events and trigger a flow run using prefect's client api.

    Okay cool. Thanks. Do you have any suggestions for an external source by any chance? : )

    Unfortunately not, it'd be specific to what kind of events you're looking at. For example, you might write some code that listens to kafka and starts a new flow for every message.
