My May 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 I started this Linux Snap Package Metrics series and I’ll be updating 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
circleci 876
hub 1,271
linode-cli 51
pocket-casts 515
scc 50
zsync 137

There’s a couple items of note here.

  1. I haven’t done this post in a few months so I’ve excluded the % change column this time around.
  2. I’ve also dropped the distro column. Didn’t seem useful.
