Integrate Creative Cloud Libraries
Creative Cloud Libraries are the foundation of creative systems, powering asset re-use across teams and documents. With the Libraries API, you can seamlessly connect your application with Creative Cloud by giving your users and their teams direct access to all their creative elements stored in Libraries.

Publish your plugins and integrations directly to the Marketplace in the Creative Cloud Desktop app for users to easily discover, install, and manage—and to the Enterprise Admin Console for admins to easily find, deploy, and give access to plugins and integrations intended for business use.

The Creative Cloud Developer Community
Multiple focuses. Many identities. A singular mission to empower creativity.
Creative Cloud developers can build plugins and scripts for a single Creative Cloud app, or multiple apps at once. Or they can integrate services from Adobe into their own products. Some developers do all of these things!
A singular mission
No matter why or how they got here, Creative Cloud developers are on a mission to inspire and empower creatives to get more done in less time, collaborate in new ways, and push the boundaries of creativity.
Connect with our community
We're rolling out a new set of forums for developers. We have categories for a selection of APIs to start, with support for more on the way.
Extensible Creative Cloud products and services
Many Creative Cloud apps and services are extensible through APIs, SDKs, and Events. Choose your favorite to get started.
