Snapcraft support for other init systems (sysVinit, runit, openrc)?

I’m in devuan. A fork of debian. I see snapcraft is banned in devuan

Because snapd heavily depends on systemd. While flatpak is supported .

Please make patch to add other init system too for snapd/snapcraft. so it would be available to devuan too.


where this has been discussed before

1 Like Linux / Gentoo converts sytemd units to openrc scripts

however flatpack in gentoo is way to go… if snap just used units then you could shim them tools to repack snaps to flatpak or offten flat scrape snaps store as is.

cronify for timers 50/50 shot , initify works perfectly in most cases , used to convert Asus laptop utils for lights ie kb , python to start on old laptop at boot…
