Q: Could snaps be distributed without Snap Store?

Hi I was wondering if I built a snap could I take it, put it on another machine and install it there without ever uploading it to the snap store? This is obviously not what I’m going to do but just wanted to learn if that’s possible in theory.

Yes, that’s a common thing to do during development.

Yes, you will need to use the “–dangerous” flag (see snap install -h) to allow installing without the store-provided assertions.

Great! Thanks for the clear answers. I was thinking of using snaps for my next project.
