Snaps are app packages for desktop, cloud and IoT that are easy to install, secure, cross‐platform and dependency‐free. Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, the app store for Linux with an audience of millions.
A snap is a bundle of an app and its dependencies that works without modification across Linux distributions.
Snapd is the background service that manages and maintains your snaps, automatically.
The Snap Store provides a place to upload snaps, and for users to browse and install the software they want.
Snapcraft is the command and the framework used to build and publish snaps.
