The .Net Frameworks had a System.AddIn namespace, which we used to build successful post-deployment extensions that included UIs. Our main WPF application displayed the UIs for these plugins in a ~tab control view. Does .Net Core have any solution for hosting a functional UI that is built in a post-deployment AddIn?

    It looks like System.Addin won't be ported to .NET Core.

    Port and update System.Addin

    You can consider using MEF, it supports use in .Net Core.
