Does the developer team have any plans to produce an SDk for the operating system? I imagine the great effort to produce a larger application.

  • As people have already stated, elementary already has a development kit. It includes a compiler, editor and documentation on how to develop applications for the platform. If this is not what you would consider a "development kit", please expand your question to include details on what you mean by SDK. Apr 26 '19 at 10:43

You can use this:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y


sudo apt install -y elementary-sdk

If you need any help to start:

It is challenging to give you a definitive answer, because ideas of what an SDK should include differ. Some components that come to mind:

  • development library headers -- these are available in the elementary PPAs or you can find them in some other distribution repositories
  • an integrated development environment -- elementary code comes to mind, but Glade or GNOME Builder could be useful as well
