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:
