I'm looking for indesign plugin development how to start and build the plugin step by step. The resources pdf provide by the adobe was difficult to understand the c++ concepts. I've background knowledge of indesign scripting.

I'm aware indesign was developed by c++. But I've lit bit knowledge of c++. The sdk related adobe resources pdf was an deep complex concept of C++.

Could you any one suggest how to start and develop the simple plugins step by step or share resources you have.

Learning the basics of C++ is best done with the vast choice of books, courses etc. independent from InDesign. Allocate a few months, or years, for practice. More time to become familiar with InDesign SDK specifics, associated tools such as the ODFRC compiler. Design patterns, other concepts. While I already knew C++, it still took me months to write my first plug-in.

 

There is one book by Kris Coppieters. While it is about old versions (published 2009), most information still applies:

It won't teach you C++ though, it also starts with references to several C++ books from that era.
