I created basic Snap package for Kakoune. It’s avaliabe on snap branch at my GH.
- I’m not big fan of Snaps. They are supported on all major distributions tho. That is a lot of potential users who could use Kakoune without compiling it manually.
- It needs some testing. I haven’t created snap before so I don’t know If I packaged it correctly.
- For now it needs to be built manually. I guess Snaps could be build on Travis and uploaded to GH releases. I’m not sure how Snap store submission process looks like (It’s a classic Snap so it would require manual verification), also I’m not sure if it’s worth a hassle.
How to build and install:
snapcraft snap install --classic --dangerous kakoune_v2019.01.20_amd64.snap sudo snap alias kakoune kak
You can also use pre-build snap from my releases (if you don’t mind running random binaries from Internet :V )
