Adobe CEP Extension Boilerplate

This is a pre-release CEP boilerplate for Adobe extensions. The code has the basic layout of an extensions palette to quickly start creating a new extension. This is a very barebones template so not much beyond the basics is included. I will add more as time permits.


I am a freelance developer and your donations help me continue to create free resources. You can donate to this project using the button below. Every bit helps.


I have included a self-signed certificate and build script ( in the download. Just run the script to build the extension then use the ZXP installer mentioned below to install.

This extension has not yet been submitted to Adobe Exchange (but soon). For now, you can download the ZXP file in this repository and use Anastasiy's Extension Manager to install. Anastasiy's Extension Manager is a fantastic app.


You are free to use, modify, and distribute this script as you see fit as long as you maintain the copyright notices in the original source files. A link to the Atomic Lotus website would be appreciated as well. You must also extend the same license to users of your code. This is not to say that your original code must be open source, but the code from this project must remain free and open forever.
