Huawei Releases HarmonyOS Ecosystem Partner SDK Marketplace: Covering 18 Sectors to Drive HarmonyOS NEXT Native App Development

Huawei today officially launched its HarmonyOS ecosystem partner SDK marketplace, a platform aggregating various SDKs aimed at facilitating developers in searching, selecting, and utilizing feature-rich SDKs to build native apps for HarmonyOS.

According to the announcement, over 350 SDKs across 18 sectors have already joined the HarmonyOS NEXT version adaptation, with more than 120 SDKs already listed on the partner SDK marketplace. These encompass categories such as lifestyle services, security, media, AI, advertising, payments, analytics, social networking, finance, and more, including Alibaba Cloud Audio and Video Terminal SDK, AutoNavi Maps SDK, and the Mobile Development Platform mPaaS (referred to as Ant mPaaS).

Ant mPaaS alone has already facilitated over 200 enterprises to initiate compatibility testing, driving the adaptation of thousands of apps to the HarmonyOS NEXT version. Additionally, more than 5,000 applications, including Meituan, Douyin, AutoNavi, Taobao, Alipay, Weibo, Bilibili, Qunar, and others, have joined the HarmonyOS ecosystem.

Built upon the national management requirements for SDKs, the partner SDK marketplace has introduced SDK lifecycle management norms, audit specifications, and a governance system. From service provider onboarding to SDK listing, each SDK undergoes security checks and signature authentication.

The official statement highlights that the partner SDK marketplace will leverage full lifecycle management of SDKs and comprehensive marketing channels to ensure SDK products reach a broader developer base, enabling timely discovery and usage. In long-term operations, the marketplace adheres to strict standards for product management review, service provider exit criteria, and more, fostering compliant operation within the partner SDK marketplace.

SDK: Abbreviation for Software Development Kit, refers to a collection of development tools used by software engineers to create applications for specific software packages, frameworks, hardware platforms, and operating systems.
