I'm a Fedora user. Fedora packages an old version of Guake, and in the last release (Fedora 29) it has broken dependencies. I think snap and/or flatpak would be a good alternative in this kind of situation

Dupe of #41. Please search first. Yes, we definitely need a snap package.

// , Why not AppImage?

| hackel commented over 2 years ago

AppImage is outdated, offers no isolation, and is not nearly as widely accepted. It doesn't handle automatic updates, let alone snapshot-based updates. It has no base platform images, so each AppImage must package all dependencies or rely on the host dependencies, making it not truly distribution agnostic and much harder for the app developer.

I would love to see a snap as well

Would complement Fedora Silverblue well since it aims to be an immutable OS. This would be one less thing to worry about
