Create snap packages for your own programmes on Linux

Create snap packages for your own programmes on Linux

Packaged in this way, the distributor is currently primarily delivering server services and software that receive frequent updates. The lightweight Ubuntu Core even uses snap packages exclusively.

In addition to the software from its own repositories, Ubuntu now delivers some software as snap packages. While the alternative package format Flatpak is booming in the rest of the Linux world, Canonical is sticking to the Snap format developed in-house for Ubuntu.

As with its competitor Flatpak, it is easier to provide software as a snap package instead of building a separate package for each distribution and version. The package then contains everything in the correct version that the software needs to operate. This has another advantage: Several versions of a software can easily be installed and used in parallel. While Flatpak is particularly popular for desktop applications, Snaps are explicitly also suitable for server services. Canonical offers the Snapcraft build tool especially for putting together your own snap packages.
