I'm playing with Office/Sharepoint Add-ins (formerly "Apps"), but am stuck at the beginning because the Office/SharePoint node is missing from my installation of Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition.

I'm expecting an Office/SharePoint node per step 3 of "Create the add-in project" in the instruction set at:

and 10:12 of the MVA video found here:

My VS New Project dialog looks like:
VS New Project Dialog
Furthermore, if I search for "SharePoint" or "Office" under Installed or Online I get no results.

My installation looks like:
VS 2015 Settings
What am I missing? How can I get Templates for Office and SharePoint add-ins?
Thank you!
