Futuremodel is a framework that automatically generates
LookML using a point and click interface.
The code it generates is highly optimized and
as fast and in many cases, faster than native LookML.
Code development, testing, debugging and
maintenance are managed for you.
Looker is inflexible because it depends on static
models formed at the time of project creation. FM,
decomposes complex data structures into elemental
that are dynamically generated at run-time.
As a result, operations that are tedious in native
as data transformation and statistical aggregation*, can
in a few keystrokes in FM.
This flexible architecture allows us to easily
create enhanced tools (such as period-over-period, cohorts
geospatial analysis) and we’re adding new tools all the

Your data should be connected and portable. Futuremodel

What is FM?
Futuremodel is a platform written on Looker
that automatically generates LookML using a
point and click interface. Business
analysts, IT professionals, managers and
executives can get the benefit of Looker
without having to become LookML coders.
How do I use FM?
Futuremodel provides simple extensions to
the native Looker interface so it can be
easily mastered by anyone familiar with
Looker. To the Looker interface, Futuremodel
adds two pre-made Explores - DataHub and
Are there reasons an experienced LookML
developer would use FM?
The Futuremodel interface typically
generates well-structured LookML 10-20
faster than an experienced LookML developer
can. The resulting code is well-structured,
optimized and bug-free. “Editing code”
generated long ago or by someone else can be
done by simply changing a setting in the
visual interface instead of reverse
engineering the code.
Besides auto-code generation, are there
Futuremodel provides interactive tools that
greatly simplify transformation and
organization of data tables and provides
many high-level functions such as, [Davis]
that are tedious to write manually. People

resources that document its functionality.
