Here’s one more snap specially packaged for you
Vault is a tool to manage secrets in a secure way. So all the confinement properties that Ubuntu and snaps provide make it a perfect match. It’s developed by Hashicorp, an amazing free software company that builds a cool set of tools for server infrastructure. So our interest with vault is to get it into the Ubuntu store with a flawless release process, in order to get all the other hashicorp tools following it.
Vault version 0.7 is in the stable channel, so you can get it with:
$ sudo snap install vault
version 0.7.1 is in the candidate channel:
$ sudo snap install vault --candidate
Here is the guide to get started testing: https://gist.github.com/elopio/e8481471a9b3964ccf5bf9f0c09605a9
You will notice that it only documents tests for the dev server. One very important thing to try before release is the server in a more real environment. And many more things to try can be found on the website docs:
Also, just as we did with IPFS, it’s very important to test the update process. After installing from the stable channel:
$ sudo snap refresh vault --candidate
As usual, please let me know how it goes. And if you have questions about vault or snaps, here is also a good place to ask.
(This call for testing started in the mailing list a couple of months ago, updated now for version 0.7.1)
