Clicked-point coordinates as input for buffer tool in python (outside ArcMap)

I'm looking build a custom geoprocessing service to be added as a widget in Web App Builder.  The geoprocessing tool will need x/y coordinates from a clicked point on a map (not a point from an existing feature class).

I'm working outside of ArcMap (coding in Pyscripter , so my understanding is that a Python add-in may not work).

For simplicity's sake, let's say it's a buffer tool - easy enough w/ arcpy, but my question is how to use x/y from clicked point as input for the buffer.
