This could be interesting for app developers...

https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/desktop/examples
How to snap a desktop or server app. Snapping software to run on your Ubuntu desktop or server isn't very different from snapping any other software, and Snapcraft's plugin system and declarative nature makes this generally very easy. We still want to walk you through a couple of examples which ...
