My November 2018 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 % Change Top 3 Distros
circleci 633 +5.32% Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian
hub 187 +107.78% Ubuntu, Neon, Linux Mint
linode-cli 16 +300% Ubuntu, Linux Mint
pocket-casts 57 n/a (new) Ubuntu, elementary OS, Linux Mint
zsync 64 +88.24% Ubuntu, Manjaro, Neon
