Snaps are Linux app packages for desktop, cloud and IoT that are self-contained, simple to install, secure, cross-platform, and dependency-free.
They update automatically and typically run within a confined and transaction-based environment. Security and robustness are their key features, alongside being easy to install, easy to maintain and easy to upgrade.
Snaps help desktop users effortlessly install and run apps like Spotify or Slack. They help sysadmins run servers like NextCloud, developers to package and distribute their work to the global Snap Store, and they help everyone build and deploy IoT devices running Ubuntu Core.
From Linux and maker space tinkerers, to the robotics, automotive and signage industries; from your desktop to a deployment of thousands, snap can handle it.
