For python add-ins, from what I understand it is not possible.  Can't answer for any others.

I was told from the 'horse's mouth' that all Add-Ins were not going to be supported. Probably because they can't with the new development environment. It's a Microsoft thing.

ArcGIS Pro will feature a new .Net API using coarse grained objects which we currently (and internally) calling ProObjects. Add-Ins based on the ArcObjects APIs will not work in Pro. Think of the architecture difference of ArcMap and Pro being somewhat related when you make a comparison between ArcGIS Engine and the ArcGIS Runtime.

Getting an add-in into Pro is similar to getting an add-in into ArcMap. The backstage in Pro is featuring an Add-In Manager that works in a similar way to the classic desktop applications.

There's a developer sample on GitHub: arcgis-pro-samples-beta.  I haven't done much playing around with it yet, but I just tried the Update 2 version and it works fine.

That's good to know Mark - I had a ArcGIS Pro AddIn that was working back around July that I'm trying to resurrect now.  When I open the Visual Studio project though, I get missing references for ArcGIS.Core,

ArcGIS.Desktop.Core, and about 6 other assemblies.  I am guessing it is because of that reason that my extensions don't load in "ArcGIS Pro Update 2".  Where can I find those missing assemblies, and am I right in thinking that I just need to have a subfolder under ArcGIS Pro/bin/Extensions (as shown below) to get this working?

I ran into the same problem with Update 1.  As of Update 1, the install path has changed and the project file uses the new path, but if you upgrade ArcGIS Pro, the path doesn't change.  You can either edit the paths in the project file or completely uninstall ArcGIS Pro before reinstalling it.

Does anyone know if the ArcGIS Pro AddIn API will include a Python interface like there is with ArcMap?
