My August 2020 Linux Snap Package Metrics

Posted on

I maintain a several Snap packages (installable Linux software packages) and I’ve been very interested in the metrics that Snapcraft (the Snap Store) provides. It’s a (minor) indicator of how large the snap user base is (or at least growth) as well as how useful a snap may or may not be. Plus, it’s a nice feeling to see the usage of something I’ve made go up. In October of 2018 I started this Linux Snap Package Metrics series and I’m trying to report back every few months with the numbers.

Here’s the metrics for snaps I maintain for the past month:

Snap # Active Devices % Change
circleci 1,589 +18.1%
cu-ddns 46 -13.2%
gotham 11 0.0%
hub 4,275 +2.0%
linode-cli 120 +13.2%
para 4 0.0%
pocket-casts 757 -3.8%
scc 448 +23.8%
sonar 11 0.0%
zsync 224 -7.8%

There’s a couple items of note here:

Gotham, para, and Sonar are new projects of mine.
