Show other architectures with snap info

In my quest to use the cli to release revisions of my snaps to stable, I found it quite difficult to script discovering the revision for each architecture in a specific channel in order to promote to another channel. For example:

snapcraft release <snap-name> <revision> <channel>

To query the revision of a snap in the edge channel, I was able to script `snap info ’ and parse the output to get the revision in edge. However, this only finds the revision for my current architecture.

It would be useful to add a --arch arg to snap info to gather the same info for a different architecture.

Of course this could even be further simplified to add the ability to just look up the latest revision in a specific channel and architecture. But It’s easy enough to parse that out of the results of the snap info command.

We’ll need to consider this a bit further, mainly because we don’t generally manipulate information that is for a completely different architecture in the local system. But I can see your use case. Adding to the backlog.

Was this ever discussed more?

snapcraft status <snapname> covers this now surely?

not here …

$ snapcraft status offlineimap
Snap 'offlineimap' was not found in '16' series.
$

It does if you own it, which was Ken’s use case.

ah, sorry, missed that part, somehow the wish was father to the thought here … :slight_smile: (i’d really love a snap find --arch armhf foo)

Yeah that’s what I was looking for too :-/

FWIW it’s on my TODO but it’s not prioritised, to get architectures into snap info.
