Right now I managed to configure Snappy, but I have some issues with it:
- It works well only on Ubuntu, other distros like Debian work pretty bad, Gentoo and similar don't support it completely
- It's not true open source, but more or less all Canonical corporate project
- The "marketplace" is completely under Canonical, closed source and can't be even configured in Snappy or changed
- Build servers must run Ubuntu
- Dependencies must all exist in ubuntu repositories, using different versions or custom builds is extremely hard
The idea of cross-distribution packaging system is cool, I love it, but I have these issues with Snappy. If FlatPack offers the same, but doesn't have these issues, we might switch to it.
Someone needs to check it out, how it works and try to create some kind of manifest file that could be used to package Huggle with it.
