Really informative article Andrew. I’ve been having fun installing Ubuntu Core on a Raspberry Pi 3 I installed the classic snap and snapcraft as per your article so that I could build and package the Mosquitto messaging broker on the Pi for armhf architecture. It’s now in my store as a snap package for easy installation on any of my Pi’s. I’m very impressed with the ease with which snaps can be installed and the way they are isolated on the os making them easy to manage and secure. It looks like a number of Open Source projects like Mosquitto are publishing the snapcraft.yaml metadata to allow their applications to be built as snap packages.
