Enhance and extend Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver provides its own API as well as the Common Extensibility Platform (CEP), and offers you the flexibility of using C++, HTML, CSS, and JS to build extensions for Dreamweaver. You can extend the Dreamweaver UI, add powerful features for building web apps and automate entire cross-application workflows.

Extend Dreamweaver using C++ or JavaScript

Write extensions built in C++ or JavaScript that use the API to add your own functionality to Dreamweaver. Scripts written in JavaScript can work with C++ extensions or stand on their own.

Add server-side functions to your extensions

The Dreamweaver API lets you access server-side data, load server-side scripts, and even support new web server models in your extensions.

Add your own menus, panels, toolbars, reports, and inspectors

Your extensions can modify the Dreamweaver UI in almost any way you want. Add new items to menus and toolbars or entirely new ones; create your own floating panels, reports, and property inspectors.
