A desktop application snap package that is less than 1MB? Is that possible? It sure is, and here's how!
KDE Neon developer Harold Sitter was able to package up the KDE calculator, kcalc, in a snap that weighs in at a mere 320KB! How did he do it? KCalc and KDE Frameworks snaps. Like most applications in KDE, kcalc depends on the KDE Frameworks, a set of libraries and services that provide the ...

We just made it even easier to get started with snapping.
Learning to snap with codelabs. The background. I always felt that learning something new, especially new concepts and workflows usually works best if you see it first-hand and get to do things yourself. If you experience directly how your actions influence the system you're working with, ...

Read what the folks at +Rocket.Chat have to say about +Snapcraft and Snap packaging:

http://insights.ubuntu.com/2016/09/27/snap-interview-with-rocket-chat/
Snap packaging has been gaining a lot of momentum recently, from desktop apps to cloud services, and everything in between. To learn more about the people and projects that are building snaps Michael Hall, Ubuntu Community Manager, reached out to Aaron Ogle a Core Contributor to the Open Source Project Rocket.Chat. How did you find out about snaps? At Rocket.Chat we’ve always been big users of Ubuntu. Our recommendation for our users has always b...

OK, I'm really overdue on posting something about this as I've had _something_ running on the dragonboard 410c for a while. If you don't know about dragonboard you can check out dragonboard from 96boards . So dragonboard is targeted to be a supported reference board by our Snappy team and ...

Click packages had something similar to Flatpak's runtimes, but that brings it's own challenges with maintaining backwards compatibility and limiting flexibility. With snaps we're allowing more options, while keeping the developer in full control of their stack

+Michael Hall sorry, I wasn't referring to their backend. Just their UI. The icons are identical on the slack web client as they are in the images in the article.

Not saying there is anything wrong with that, don't re-invent wheels and all.

I was beginning to wonder when I would see an Ubuntu phone post, it's been a while.

I'm excited that we will be working with the +The KDE Community to improve the development and distribution of the KDE platform for Ubuntu users (and beyond!)
With KDE having grown from a hobby project by a few volunteers 20 years ago to the large and central Free Software community it is now, our interactions with other organizations have become increasingly important for us. KDE software is available on several platforms, is shipped by numerous distributions large and small, and KDE has become the go-to Free Software community when it comes to Qt. In addition to those who cooperate with KDE on a tech...
