There’s a lot more to snap packaging than the simple installation and removal of snaps; you can grant or revoke an application’s access to system resources, reconfigure internal parameters, make a local copy of a snap and check a snap’s provenance.
This is one of several tutorials that cover more advanced snap usage and covers how to monitor the internal state of changes within snapd, the daemon that manages the snap packaging system.
We recommend you familiarise yourself with basic snap usage before reading this tutorial. See Getting started for further details.
