Looker API SDKs

The Looker API offers different ways to make use of an SDK. We suggest using one of our SDKs, instead of making manual requests to the API, because the SDKs handle the intricate details of authentication, parameter serialization, response serialization, and other concerns.

Language SDKs

Looker offers an official Looker API client SDK in several languages:

You can find source code and project examples that use SDKs to communicate with the Looker API in Lookers SDK Example GitHub repository

Generating Client SDKs for the Looker API

If you are not familiar with the languages above or your company uses a different programming language, you can generate a client SDK in the language of your choice using the “legacy” mode of Looker’s SDK codegen project. Instructions for doing so can be found in Looker’s SDK Codegen GitHub repository.
