Short answer: Not if you want to write to your repo

Using this pattern creates a read-only connection to the repo. If you are connecting to the repo via this method, go to Step 2 of this section in our git docs where our supported patterns exist. Because git: doesn't use SSH or HTTPS protocol, you won't be able to write to your repo from Looker, and thus will see READ-ONLY next to the branch name in the top left corner of the project IDE.
