Snappy Playpen Sandpit
The Snappy Playpen is among other things a collection of well-working examples, best-practices and showcase of what
snapcraft and friends can do. In this sandpit section of the playpen we want to take a less structured approach and expect less polish. Here we want to get everyone to experiment on their favourite pieces of software and collaborate.
- If you want a snap of software you like, add it here.
- If you have been working on a snap of something and it doesn't quite work yet, add it to the table and see if somebody else is going to pick it up and help you fix it.
- If you're blocked by something on your snapping adventure, add information and maybe even a link a bug report, so we know and can track this together.
There are no hard and fast rules, here are just some thoughts:
- To get started, fork the upstream project - that'll make your work easy to find and easy to fork by others.
- A pastebin works too.
snapcraft cleanbuildhelps you figure out the list of
- Talk to people on Gitter or IRC if you need help.
- If you start working on improving somebody else's snap, feel free to point to your PR, repo, branch or pastebin once yours in a better shape. Send them a quick message!
