A Snap that fails in configurable ways and means

This snap is useful for testing snap hooks.

By setting configuration on the snap, one can control which hooks will fail.

$ snap set fail-tester HOOK_NAME=true


``` $ snap set fail-tester configure=true


Will cause the configure hook to fail. To undo this, one clears the setting:

``` $ snap set fail-tester configure= ```

and the configure hook will work again.

Supported hooks are:

  • configure
  • install
  • pre-refresh
  • post-refresh
