thank you @nickbauman! never thought of that !


You can also setup cloud functions to trigger when a file lands in datastore, which may be more or less suitable than app engine depending on the scale and update rate.

right now I think I'll just put data in BQ as it comes, because I want the front end to be real time (or as close to real time as possible)

webhook -> event(carries data) -> cloud function -> BQ


if you want to get really fancy gcloud does have data streaming apis too

they can handle webhooks ? do you have a suggestion ?


Not really. Based on what you've said so far I think your proposed solution is good and likely using something more powerful would be over engineering. But it's good to be aware that the more powerful solution exists.
