Develop Client Applications for SharePoint 2013 using Client Components SDK.


You can develop Client applications which can perform basic operations with SharePoint 2013.

Suppose if you are developing a Silver light application or a JavaScript application which performs basic operations on SharePoint, you do not require a SharePoint foundation 2013 or SharePoint server 2013 to develop.  You can download the “SharePoint Server 2013 Client Components SDK” from here  and reference the installed assemblies,scripts for  remote/local development. 

You can host it remotely on a machine which has the aforementioned SDK/Redistributables and do basic operations on SharePoint 2013.


The supported operating systems are windows 7, windows 8 release preview, windows server 2008 RC. Choose the 32 bit/ 64 bit installable according to the operating system which you are using. The package installs all files in:
