Install .snap files offline

@ogra said that this (downloading .snaps and .asserts for install offline) should be handled by Ubuntu Software. I spoke to the Ubuntu Desktop team and they dismissed the idea (scroll to the bottom), I don’t think this is going to go anywhere sadly unless UAppExplorer on their own figure out how to do it.

They may simply call snap download for that. It will download both the file and the assertions. They can also contact the store directly, though. Please ask them to open a more specific topic here in the forum and we can tell them exactly how to extract the necessary assertions from the store.

uappexplorer is a website … they cant call any local commands, this is why i suggested using some application protocol (like apt:// ) to invoke the SW center from a link.

If possible, maybe could be implemented on snapweb since is from canonical
