The Rainmeter plugin software development kit contains the necessary tools and examples to build plugins in C/C++ and C#. Note that plugins built with the SDK require Rainmeter 2.3 beta or higher.
- Use git (
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:rainmeter/rainmeter-plugin-sdk.git)
- Use svn (

- Download the current snapshot as a .zip archive.
The SDK can be built using any version of Visual Studio 2013. If you don't already have VS2013, you can download the free "Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows Desktop" version here.
