I publish most of my work via snap store and advocate the cause of snaps and snap store. Not because I have all my apps published as snaps but for the following few reasons:

  • snaps are secure

  • snaps are easy to build

  • snaps are easy to maintain

  • updating snaps consumes less bandwidth

  • snap store provides the quickest and safest delivery of software from the original developer to millions of Linux users worldwide

  • Snap store’s application publishing approach is developer friendly

  • with dedicated product pages for each application and the optimal SEO, snapcraft web store lets developers reach millions of potential users around the world

  • snapcraft build and publishing service alleviates the effort of managing the application lifecycle and allows developers to focus on development rather than application publication. It saves a significant amount of time

  • wonderful community, this forum where everyone can openly express their concerns directly to developers involved in the development of the project

and much more :heart:
