We’re thinking of creating a subfolder in Looker’s main folder (where all LookML resides), and that subfolder would contain non-LookML code we use for data modeling, or data transformation (mainly SQL files, but also shell scripts, yaml files, and potentially other file types).
The motivation is to have LookML and data modeling code live in one single place, which would allow us to build automated tests to check that changes in our data modeling plays well with Looker, and vice versa - which is incredibly hard to do if the two things live in different places i.e. 2 different repositories.
- Is there any known negative impact of having a subfolder with lots of LookML-unrelated, e.g. on Lookers LookML validator, or on Looker’s git integration?
- Is there anyone out there who has tried that?
