Visualization extensions use the same set of technologies as standard Qlik Sense visualizations, and if developed properly, the handling of them is identical to standard visualizations.
Custom objects are visualization objects you build to extend the visualization capabilities of Qlik Sense using standard web technologies.

In the hub you find the widgets and visualization extensions available to you in the assets panel under Custom objects.
