Canonical's Simon Fels announced today that he's working on bringing the Snapd Snappy daemon to the Raspberry Pi Foundation's Raspbian operating system to allow the installation of Snaps.
For those unfamiliar with Snaps, they are Canonical's universal binary format for distribution of sandboxed applications across various GNU/Linux distributions. On the other hand, Snapd is the daemon that enables support for installing Snaps on a Linux-based OS. The Snappy technologies are designed by Canonical for Ubuntu.
