My snap https://snapcraft.io/newsboat ships two binaries,
podboat. It used to include a
podboat alias, but as these got deprecated, I just removed it from snapcraft.yaml.
An updated snap hasn’t made it to the Store yet. The next release is scheduled for 22nd of December, but I might publish to
edge much earlier. (Don’t know if it’s required to have the newest snap in the Store to get an alias).
+1. Having a podboat alias for the command makes sense.
Hello, the name rang a bell so I checked; the old auto alias was granted here: Alias request for newsboat/podboat and I just verified that the alias is still in place. So this should just work ™ as you publish a new snap containing the podboat command.
If this doesn’t work as you expect, please reply here so I can have a look.
Indeed! When I installed the latest version from edge channel,
podboat alias worked out of the box. Thanks!
