J'ai eu des difficultés à trouver des infos sur l'installation d'Android Studio sur Xenial, et je suis tombé par hasard sur cet outil Ubuntu : Ubuntu Make (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-make) qui permet d'installer de manière rapide et propre plein d'environnement de dev' sur Ubuntu : eclipse, android... Sympa !

Ubuntu Make. Ubuntu Make is a command line tool which allows you to download the latest version of popular developer tools on your installation, installing it alongside all of the required dependencies (which will only ask for root access if you don't have all the required dependencies installed ...

The afternoon hacking session at the Snappy Sprint is a Snapcrafting tutorial. I've got my laptop on the projector and +Didier Roche​ and +Kyle Fazzari​ are explaining some of more advanced techniques, such as debugging confinement warnings, to the cross distro gathering shown in the photo below.

We are using +uGet​ as the example because we contacted the uGet project manager +Michael Tunnell​ and he wants a snap 😀

Also bringing my +Entroware​ Athena has paid off for building lots of snaps. +Sergio Schvezov​ (one of the +Snapcraft​ devs) has remarked on the snap building speed ☺️

Anyway +Michael Tunnell​ will be pleased to hear the uGet snap is working and we'll be able to upstream it very soon. But we're about to break it now, because shared library snaps are the new hotness and we're going to try using them 😲 #snappysprint

Here's a chance for you and your project to help shape the snap story. Apply for participation and sponsorship to attend the next sprint in Germany w/c 18th July.

The article has all the details.


Shaping up universal snaps. Following the announcement of snaps being supported across a range of key Linux distributions, the development teams working on snaps and Snapcraft are making universal snaps one of the main topics of their next sprint in Heidelberg, Germany, from 18-22 July.

Inspired by a post from +OMG! Ubuntu! about getting gedit 3.10 installed on 16.04 LTS I thought I'd try and make a Snap to avoid all that tedious PPA stuff.

With some help from +Sebastien Bacher we got it mostly working. There are a few caveats; settings are not stored yet and first run is a little slow.

If you want to give it a go you can download the snap binary from here:
http://www.whizzy.org/gedit310_1_amd64.snap

and then: sudo snap install gedit310_1_amd64.snap --devmode
(dev mode is still needed at the moment, working on that next). To run it use:

$ gedit310

Or for more fun clone this github repo:

https://github.com/8none1/gedit310

Install snapcraft (sudo apt install snapcraft) and then run snapcraft from the dir in to which you cloned that repo. Then sit back for 5 mins and watch snapcraft work it's magic and pop out a .snap!

I think this brings a new dimension to Snaps on the desktop; we've been talking about being able to track the latest upstreams more easily, but you can of course install an older version of an application that you especially like just as easily.

Beautiful work by +Kyle Fazzari: not only did he snap +Nextcloud, he also wrote a 6-part blog series about it, here's part one, go check it out: https://kyrofa.com/posts/installing-nextcloud-can-be-a-snap
I've been an ownCloud user for years, and I recently moved to using Nextcloud, which is based upon ownCloud. Both my wife and I use it to sync our calendars and contacts across all our devices, and also use it to sync our documents, music, pictures, and videos. It caters to my paranoid nature-- ...

Here is what I worked on recently!
 
Getting your desktop snap integrated in to the desktop environment just got a whole lot easier!

I made a little (20 mins) introduction to using Snapcraft to make a snap of OpenTTD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0IzxsIFjJY

Very lovely owner. We came to buy a real Irish thin whistle (one made in Ireland, unlike many others famous brand) and discovered this little boutique selling one. The owner took time to discuss with us and is clearly passionate about traditional music instruments.
