Creating a snap
You can create snaps from apps you’ve already built and zipped, or from your preferred programming language or framework.
For a brief overview of the snap creation process, including how to install snapcraft and how it’s used, see Snapcraft overview.
The following is an outline of the typical snap build process, which you can step through to create your snap:
Create a checklist
Better understand your snap’s requirements.
Create a snapcraft.yaml file
Describes your snap’s build dependencies and run-time requirements
Add interfaces to your snap
Share system resources with your snap, and from one snap to another
Publish and share
Put your snap on the Snap Store to reach an audience of millions
