Welcome to the home of snap, snapd, and snapcraft documentation.

Snaps are transforming the way we install and update apps, working across many distributions and versions of Linux, bundling dependencies and config, and simplifying installs to a single standard command.

Take a look at Getting started if you’d like to know more about working with snaps, or choose a topic you’d like to read about from the menu.

Most of this documentation can be collaboratively discussed and changed on the respective topic in the Snapcraft forum. See the documentation guidelines if you’d like to contribute.
