# How to create SSDTs

Creating SSDTs mainly fall into 3 camps:

  • Prebuilt SSDTs
    • They're universal but don't teach much
    • For most users, we recommend this as it does not require any compiling
  • Automated tools
    • Mainly seen with SSDTTime, work much better than prebuilts as there's less bloat however doesn't teach you much
  • Manually creating them
    • Will always work, be much cleaner and get to learn about the process
    • However requires you to deal with code

If you're not comfortable with editing and compiling code, we recommend the prebuilt option
