Looker API SDKs

The Looker API offers two 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 already take care of the intricate details of authentication, parameter serialization, response serialization, and other concerns.

Option 1: Ruby SDK

Looker offers an official Looker API client SDK for the Ruby programming language. You can install it as a gem from Looker Ruby SDK documentation and source code reside on github.

Option 2: Swagger Generated SDK

If you are not familiar with Ruby or your company uses another language, you can generate a client SDK in the language of your choice. Instructions for doing so can be found in this Community topic.
