My December 2019 Linux Snap Package Metrics

Posted on

I maintain a few 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. In October of 2018 I started this Linux Snap Package Metrics series and I’m trying to report back every month with the numbers until someone tells me otherwise 😄.

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

Snap # Active Devices % Change
circleci 1,104 +0.2%
cu-ddns 27 +28.6%
hub 2,835 +12.3%
linode-cli 96 +28.0%
pocket-casts 625 +1.1%
scc 216 +36.7%
stubb 61 n/a (new)
zsync 169 +3.0%

There’s a single item of note here:

Stubb is a new Docker metadata/utility tool I made. Check it out.
