I’ve been trying to get my app Moneydance (a personal finance management app) properly signed and available as a snap both for download from my site (infinitekind.com) as well as from the Ubuntu store.
The main problem I’m running into with strict mode confinement is that I need to access the ~/.moneydance folder which is where preferences, extensions/plugins, and sometimes data is stored. We’ve used the .moneydance folder since 1997 through now, so losing access to it would be a pretty bad experience for users upgrading to the new version. If there were a way to retain access to that dot-folder I might be able to make strict confinement work.
Another issue is that I bundle a java (11.0.1) JRE but I’m hopeful that I could work around those issues by enabling the necessary interfaces/plugs.
I’ve been packaging the snaps and uploading them to our beta/preview site here: https://infinitekind.com/preview
but I suppose you may have access to it through the ubuntu store since they’ve been pushed for signing.
Thank you for your time to review this.
