Windows Admin Center SDK
Welcome to the Windows Admin Center SDK! Windows Admin Center is an evolution of Windows Server in-box management tools; a locally deployed, browser-based management experience that supports scenarios where customers need full control of all aspects of their deployment, including private networks which aren’t Internet-connected.
Get started with the SDK
Getting started with Windows Admin Center development is easy! Follow along with step-by-step directions to prepare your environment, and learn more about writing and publishing extensions at our documentation site.

Sample Code included with the SDK
Sample code can be found for tool, solution, and gateway plugin extension types in our SDK documentation. There you will leverage the Windows Admin Center CLI to build a new extension project, then follow the individual guides to customize your project to meet your needs.
Developer Tools is a repository of code to give you an example of how to use and include Windows Admin Center controls and styles in your extensions. Just use the CLI to create your tool or solution, and then reference the code in the repository to see what is available.
To actually see the code in action, Use the Extension Manager to find the "Windows Admin Center Developer Tools (Preview)" extension and install it. This will add a new solution to your gateway instance that has tools to help you explore the development environment.
