I’m not sure if this is the right category for my question, but the description has ‘best practices’ in it, so here goes.
Where do you store your data dictionary, and has it worked? Looker pitched their recently-released LookML Model API endpoint as being a tool to enable building a data dictionary. I’m inferring then that at least some users store the dictionary outside of Looker. As of last year, Warby Parker used gitbook. But Looker has come a long way with annotations and the markdown homepage, and in theory, the dictionary could live within Looker itself. Here at Managed by Q, we briefly tried using a google spreadsheet, but now matter how many times and places we linked to it, no one ever used it.
I’d love to hear input from the Looker community on how they’ve approached this problem.
