RunIt is a React-based specification-driven REST API request tester.
Looker's API Explorer uses the RunIt package for testing API endpoints.
A configuration provider interface enables RunIt to work both in the Looker Extension Framework runtime environment and as a stand-alone browser application.
OAuth and CORS are used to authenticate and submit REST requests for the stand-alone version.
The RunIt component has multiple tabs:
The Request tab displays a form for entering inputs to the chosen REST API endpoint
API responses are displayed on this tab. Support for rendering a variety of API response types like as JSON, CSV, Markdown, JPEG, HTML, PNG, and SQL are supported.
The language SDK calling syntax provided by the Looker codegen project (also in this repository) is shown on this tab.
Only for the stand-alone version, some performance information for HTTP request and response processing is shown here.
Only for the stand-alone version, this tab is used to configure the OAuth server for API request tokens.
