I need to reinstall my Ubuntu 18.04 and I want to backup and restore all installed snap packages including all installation settings.

With snap list I get the list of installed packages. However, the list is not in a suitable format for reinstalling all the packages. I need something like apt-clone that would work for snap packages the same way it works for apt installed packages.

You can save installed packages using following code

snap save 

And then all the installed packeges will be zipped with data to /var/lib/snapd/snapshots/
