10 desktop snaps written in December

snapcraft

It’s that time of the month! Evan Dandrea put together a selection of top ten snaps written in December.

To recap for those of you that may not know, snaps are a new way for developers to package their apps, bringing with it many advantages over the more traditional package formats such as .deb, .rpm, and others. They are secure, isolated and allow apps to be rolled back should an issue occur. Snaps really are the future of Linux application packaging.

Our list this month contains a mix from the ultimate media downloader to a Twitter snap!

1. TeaTime A simple egg-timer type application to time your teas.
2. Ultimate media downloader A Gui based video audio downloader which support download media from various sites.
3. Anatine This app is based on the Mobile Twitter site, with modifications but more usable on desktop.
4. Unison-jz Unison is a file-synchronization tool.
5. Pingus-game Pingus is a free clone of the popular Lemmings game.
6. Syncthing Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized.
7. Minetest A minecraft-inspired game written from scratch and licensed under the LGPL
8. qcheckers Checkers game written in QML for all Ubuntu Devices
9. Quassel-webserver – only in edge: snap install –edge quassel-webserver)
