This snap declares a simple daemon for checking the jobs
defined in the snapcore/spread-cron branches.
For each of the jobs, the checker/run script is executed,
it looks for changes on external resources, extracting the
relevant information according to the options file. In case
a change in the external resource related to a particular
branch is detected, then a commit is pushed to that branch,
so that the travis execution is triggered.
The snap must be able to push to the snapcore/spread-cron repo,
the credentials for doing so are passed to the snap via a
$ snap set spread-cron username=<username> password=<password>
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
