I’d be nice to have a Chrome extension that can add or tweak features to Looker. Examples of some things off the top of my head that might be feasible:
- Overriding CSS to customise your Looker ‘theme’ - I’ve seen posts on here about people doing this
- Adding an button to open query SQL in an external UI - e.g. the BigQuery web UI is nicer than SQL runner for some things
- Browser notifications for query completion
- Making hover descriptions remain on screen and render HTML a tags so they can link to external docs (probably tricky!)
For those of us who use Google Apps, it’s possible to publish an extension so it’s only accessible within your domain.
I am a BI developer who’s been working with looker since 2015 in quite a few different contexts. I also have a computer science degree and like hacking
I don’t have a team yet…
Disclaimer: I’m not sure how feasible those suggestions are, or how happy Looker would be with this sort of a hack. Though it could let some of us prototype useful stuff which could then become part of the product. (maybe?!)
Anyone interested or have any suggestion for features?
