1.12. How can I get a copy of the SDK?
CLC bio provides software developer kits, SDKs, for our Workbenches so you can develop your own plugins for the software.
If you plan to develop plugins that will make use of tools only available in the CLC Genomics Workbench, then you will need both the standard CLC Developer Kit as well as the Genomics Developer Kit. The latter requires a special license. Please see the related FAQ entry on how to get a license for this. You will also need a licensed version of the CLC Genomics Workbench.
For developing plugins using functionality of the Main Workbench, you need just the standard CLC Developer Kit . No license for this SDK is needed, but you will need a licensed version of the Main Workbench.
To get the SDKs, please register for an account out the CLC Developer Connection site:
Once you have an account, you can find documentation as well as the developer kit software itself here:
