Is it possible to create a new view file and then update an explore through looker API? I tried using APIv3.1 and could not find any lead.

Check out my answer here:
Short version: The Looker API doesn’t have file management endpoints, you should use your git provider to change or create files.
Hi, Is this still a valid answer (after 1 year) that using Looker APIs we will not be able to update the views dynamically?
@addankirao . Looker does not support editing LookML via the API, we rely on Git for all LookML file management.
@jamesnestler @izzy is there any tutorial about this process of creating and updating view files using Git?
(we should note that pylookml is not an official thing, but it’s something folks commonly use)
Yes, I am trying to use Pylookml now, but I don’t understand how to add new dimensions to a view, the documentation is a bit confusing…
