Solr with Koha? Now you have 2 problems.
I setup Koha to use Blacklight. I was fairly easy.It's been awhile, but if
I recall, I added a single-column table in Koha to queue bibkeys. Then I
added a db trigger to the bib table to add bibkeys to the queue table
whenever there was an create/update/delete performed on a row. Then I setup
a service that queried the database queue table, got bibkeys needing
creation/update/deletion, pulled the MARC from Koha's REST api, indexed
their MARC into Solr, and then delete the bibkeys from the queue.
