I have a project and I hope can use Search API can be part of the solutions. For this project, a solr core will index a set of non-drupal data. I would like to use search_api and in particular search_api's Views support to allow users to search this data and display it in a list and detail record format.
After looking through the code, it seems like search_api is well suited for something like this. I could see how I might extend the views handlers for any special data types I need to handle, and in general, it looks like it is well abstracted to support any data set.
Do you see any major roadblocks to using Search API to pull data from a Solr core that indexes non-Drupal data? Any hints or advice?
