It’s that time of the month! Didier has put together a selection of top ten snaps written in February ranging from blockchain to graphical applications.

To recap for those that may not know, snaps are a new way for developers to package their apps, bringing with it many advantages over the more traditional package formats such as .deb, .rpm, and others. They are secure, isolated and allow apps to be rolled back should an issue occur. Snaps really are the future of Linux application packaging. Check out the top ten snaps below!


1. Openstack-cli A command-line client for OpenStack that brings the command set for Compute, Identity, Image, Object Store and Block Storage APIs together.
2. Writefull Get feedback on your writing instantly.
3. Bower Manages all things that make-up web sites – thanks to snaps you will always have the latest version of Bower.
4. Go An assembler, compiler, linker, and compiled libraries for the Go programming language.
5. Tiny Proxy A small, efficient HTTP/SSL proxy daemon released under the GNU General Public License.
6. Shotcut A free, open source, cross-platform video editor.
7. Vault Vault adds key rolling, secure storage and detailed audit logs.
8. Iota A nodejs application that processes transactions for consumption by a dashboard.
9. Librealsense This snap provides a cross-platform library for capturing data from the Intel® RealSense™ cameras
10. Mdns-hostname Broadcast Ubuntu Core’s current hostname in the .local namespace – extracted from the Nextcloud project.
