Is it possible for a developer to create a host (like WPEngine) via add-ons?

Can I add another host like WPEngine or Flywheel to Local by creating an Add-on? Is that available on add-on development?

@dbeja as long as the host has an API you can tap into you should be able to build anything you like. You have full access to the react framework just as the built-in hosts have.

Thanks @brandondove.
And do I have access to export and import methods of Local or would I have to do it manually on the code the copying of the files and exporting the sql of the database?

I don’t have direct experience with this part of the internals of local, but if you don’t see them in the documentation, you’d probably have to build that on your own.
