What is Snapp?

Snapp is a tool that generates standalone executables from Snap projects.

Why Snapp?

Once a user has finished a Snap project it can be saved to the cloud or exported to an XML file. Although this saves the user's progress and allows sharing the project, it's just not quite the same as having a true executable to show for all the hard work! Isn't it much cooler to show your friends a standalone program than some code executing on someone else's webpage?

Snapp separates the project from the framework, allowing the user to execute their project without depending on a browser or an internet connection, and being able to share the project easily with Snap nonusers.

How do I use Snapp?

Snapp is an online tool. You visit it's webpage, submit your project and the server will work it's magic! Once the executable is finished the browser will automatically download it as a zip file.

Where can I try Snapp out?

Although you are free to self-host your own version of Snapp and tinker around with it as much as you want, if you just want to try it out, or don't want to go through all the hassle, you can visit this webpage which will always be hosting the latest version of the tool. But please, be gentle with the server.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
