Accessing hidden files

Hey folks,

I’m one of the creators of Beekeeper Studio, which is a SQL editor and database client.

One of our features is that you can SSH tunnel your database connection. To do this on any system of reasonable security requires the use of a private keyfile.

This means my app needs access to $HOME/.ssh for most users, but the home plug for snaps only provides access access to NON HIDDEN files in the home directory.

What’s the best way to accomplish this within the snap permission system?

If you want access to the private ssh keys, the ssh-keys interface is the way to go.
