From my interactions with the community, I think one of the more appreciated features of the Look At Me Sideways (LAMS) LookML linter is the ability to provide concise custom rules.

However, it’s always been a bit of an arcane art, with very limited tooling, and lots of trial and error. And perhaps more error than not.

Today, that changes! I just released LAMS Rule Sandbox, a single-page app that will let you interactively write and test LAMS custom rules:

If you’re using LAMS, or are interested, give this new tool a spin, and let me know what you think!

(If you’re not yet set up with your own rules, you can load a sample project from the “About” section just to kick the tires.)

PS. I’ve also recently released some other features for LAMS, which you can review in the v2.x release notes.

We are setting up LAMS to use with our Looker Projects. It is really helpful, but I find I can’t use this sand box tool because I can’t reformat lookml to the required format.
