Welcome to CLC Developer Connection

The plugin mechanism makes the CLC workbench a very powerful tool, enabling you to create any kind of add-on for database communication or advanced bioinformatics. And the good news is, that with the CLC Developer Kit, much of the work is already done for you.

The CLC workbench product line is designed from the very beginning to be very open for add-ons. Almost every function and feature of the products are available for use with extensions, made through the associated API. In fact most of the functionality seen in the CLC workbench products are add-ons or plugins. That is all the actions in menus and toolbar, all the views presenting data, the preferences etc are all plugins.

This Software Development Kit, describes how to create add-ons (or plugins) for our workbench product line, and should provide you with all necessary tools.

A good place for you to start is to read Getting Started, visit our Discussion Forum where you can get help or post any ideas you might have or browse the pages in our Developer Documentation section. If you don't have an account yet you can sign up here.
