  • Development Toolkit (API & SDK)
    QNAP NAS applications can be developed using the following three approaches:
    1. Development Toolkit (API & SDK):
    With QNAP Development Toolkit (API & SDK), developers can design applications that can run on a client’s device (such as a smart phone or PC) and remotely manage and access files and documents stored on the NAS.
    2. NAS App (QPKG) Development
    Developers can design add-ons or applications running on the NAS and have the applications and related data integrated on the same platform. Also, through the built-in App Center on QNAP Turbo NAS, users can easily install and manage those applications.
    3. VM Integration:
    Ever want to run non-Linux based applications on the NAS? No problem! VM integration is the solution for you to install a different OS and non-Linux based applications on the NAS.
