Adding Custom D3 Visualizations

Hi All,


I would like to add some custom D3 visualizations to our Looker instance. I am very familiar with Looker and visualizations, but not well versed in JS.


Can anyone suggest a good place to start. Particularly I’d like to find a 3d column chart and a scatter plot better than Looker’s built in version.

My suggestion would be to check out this repository with docs and examples.

The only real trick for most custom visualizations is to take the looker query result and transform it into whatever signature a given library expects. In it’s simplest case it can be only a few lines of code and then including whatever library you intend to use. This being said, it can be very hard to create custom vis without a decent working knowledge of javascript.
