Introduction

Snap is a universal app package that works across Linux flavors. The snapd technology is the core that powers snaps. It offers a new way to package, distribute, update and run OS components and applications on a Linux system. Snaps are containerised software packages that are simple to create and install. They auto-update and are safe to run. And because they bundle their dependencies, they work on all major Linux systems without modification.
