Welcome to the Construct 3 JavaScript SDK documentation. The JavaScript SDK allows third-party developers to create new plugins, behaviors and effects for Construct 3. The Theme SDK also allows custom appearances for the Construct 3 editor. Please note not all SDK features are currently available. This documentation will be updated as new capabilities are rolled out.

The zip files contain the files for an example custom plugin, behavior or theme. The files for an addon can be zipped and renamed .c3addon to directly test it in the Construct 3 editor, via the Addon Manager.

Developing addons

While developing addons, be sure to use Developer Mode with a local HTTP server. It makes it much quicker to test and much easier to fix problems, which otherwise can prevent Construct 3 from starting up.
