In recent years, distribution-agnostic packaging formats have become more popular, finding audience side by side with the classic repositories. Users can often see immediate advantages to using their software plug-n-play style, but developers and system administrators may be more hesitant. The big question is, how does it all work? This presentation unveils the magic behind snaps – confined, stand-alone Linux applications bundled with all the necessary dependencies to run independently. It covers the fundamentals like snap service, snap file format, and Snap Store, but also goes into details on how to package and distribute software with snapcraft, from desktop to cloud.
