Snappy Packages

Long time no post ....

In this post, I would like to mention a couple of very early and basic packages I have created recently while exploring the snappy package manager.

First things first, i.e "what is snappy?". As mention in the Wikipedia entry on Snappy package manager "Snappy is a software deployment and package management system originally designed and built by Canonical for the Ubuntu phone operating system. The packages, called 'snaps' and the tool for using them 'snapd', work across a range of Linux distributions and allow therefore distro-agnostic upstream software deployment. The system is designed to work for internet of things, cloud and desktop computing.[2]"

Snappy gains more and more attention in the community and for very good reasons. In my attempt to further explore snappy I have created packages for two favorite CLI tools i.e. bosh and bosh-bootloader.

You can find the source and some basic usage instructions in the links below:

 Your feedback would be more than welcome
