UWP App Extensions

I want to create an UWP App, that consumes plugins.

While it sounds promising,

seems to be "useless" for this task. Unless everything my extension needs to provide are some files or key value pairs, but no Logic (unless it is provided via scripts as strings or files).

Is this observation correct, or did I miss something.

Answer

Like commenters already said, what I searched was not available in the standard Windows API.

I had also no luck in finding some Framework what would already had done what I needed.


In the end I wrote something myself: Not AppExtension, not AppService but AppPlugin (using both Extensions and Service).

It is not perfect but enough for my purposes.


Thank you for the comments (especially for the video)
