I have an app that has a front end in tons of custom AJAX and fancy JS controls.
These controls all pull from URL which return JSON in a specific format.
I would like to remove all the selection code from the existing system and integrate with drupal:
- Can views be linked to tables which are not directly managed by Drupal?
- Can Views have their output overridden to support JSON instead of HTML?
I have googled and found a few projects but none seem to be very active -- I am using D7 maybe D8 for this project :)
Any pointers, hook suggestions, etc?
