Do you know how to use InDesign? if yes then that is the first step. Next you would need to know programming skills, learn them if you don't have hands on experience in this. If you want to learn extendscripts then do remember that it uses an old version of ECMA script so not all the modern features would work on it. Once you are done with the above then you need to learn/understand the InDesign DOM, that you can reference from the following link

In the Indesign Scripts panel (Window>>Utilities>>Scripts) there are numerous scripts that you can look at. Study them and study Javascript, then use the API reference that Manan posted to start working on your own.

There are two things

  • Programming :- Here you need to learn the basic programming constructs, learn how to convert an idea into code, write efficient code etc. All this is refined with experience and you can learn it apart from InDesign.
  • Understanding how to do things programitically in InDesign. You know InDesign so lets say you devise a solution that needs you to find a layer and then rename it. Now you have a solution but how do you write that in code, how do you search for layers in a document? Here is where the link I gave you would help, you can check the properties and methods available to you that you can use.
