Snapcraft or Snap is a universal app store for Linux and deliver and update your app on any Linux distribution for desktop, cloud, and Internet of Things.
Snaps are transforming the way install and update apps, working across many distributions and versions of Linux
Snaps are bundling dependencies and config, and simplifying installs to a single standard command.
You can install snap from the command line on OpenSUSE
You first need to first add the snappy repository. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
sudo zypper addrepo --refresh https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/system:/snappy/openSUSE_Leap_15.0 snappy
Then you will see this “Repository ‘snappy’ successfully added”
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository
sudo zypper dup --from snappy
You can now install snapd with the following command
sudo zypper install snapd
It is time for restart your PC now.
if you need, you can enable and start the snapd service with the following commands;
sudo systemctl enable snapd
sudo systemctl start snapd
If you need, you can check your Snap version with following command;
