I'm just gonna write a script in PHP and let people self host it, since I think more people will be comfortable running their own script with logins and passes. So it will be a proxy as you say, just taking two parameters and being called from Google App Script. The only reason I need it in the first place is because I can't figure out how to get from a SOAP api with GAS. They deprecated their SOAP client and now you have to write the full request in xml and its basically impossible. So I'm just gonna write it in PHP and then explain to people they have to upload a php file to their own server and such.
How possible would it be to pay someone on Fiverr to deploy a Django or Flask app, if I just write the models and the processing scripts (scraping and calculations), then have someone do the views as well?
Is this "standard fare" that can be outsourced (and maintained) easily, sort of like paying someone to install and update Wordpress?
I just find the routing, database, view part of Django and Flask to be a hassle.
Maybe I should just get into Drupal? Isn't that sort of a Wordpress except with no full customizability with regards to types?
