Hi, I'm JRed! I have a question about the Adobe SDKs

Hi! I’m not sure this is the right tag, but I don’t see any that fully cover my question, and since I’m new, I’ll consider this a hello too! :smile: I recently decided to begin working on a personal idea of mine. If you do not know, Discord offers an SDK to allow c++ programs to show what their users are doing within the status of a Discord user. I know Adobe offers plugin support, so I thought it might be a cool idea to make a plugin that shows the file you are currently editing and what programs it is in. So my real question is what Adobe programs offer a c++ API (and where is their documentation) and will these APIs allow me to see the file the user is currently editing? Thank you so much for your time!

Hi there, and welcome!

Different Creative Cloud apps have different C++ SDKs. Generally speaking, you can log into https://console.adobe.io/ (recently redesigned) with an Adobe ID (even a free one) and browse around https://console.adobe.io/servicesandapis. I’d filter for “Creative Cloud” and check for “Downloads”. Then you can download C++ SDKs and see the documentation.

There appear to be some broken links in the recent redesign, so if you hit a 404 do let us know in this thread.

Generally speaking, the older forums will have more C++ developers, but they’re divided up by app, or in the “Exchange” or “Coding Corner” categories.
