My May 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 1,345 +21.8%
cu-ddns 53 +96.3%
hub 4,192 +47.9%
linode-cli 106 +10.4%
pocket-casts 787 +25.9%
scc 362 +67.6%
stubb 153 +150.8%
zsync 243 +43.8%
