I have an open-source web-based game (available on github since 2014) that I recently packaged with electron-build as a snap. The game supports joysticks and gamepads via the Gamepad API, and while testing the snap I have found that for this to work in Electron, the
hardware-observe plugs both need to be connected, otherwise the connected joysticks/gamepads are not detected.
I would kindly request enabling the auto-connection of these two interfaces. This is 3D space shooter and joystick+gamepad support is also in the description. Regarding
hardware-observe, the only reason I request it is because Electron would not detect the joysticks otherwise in my tests.
