Can Python (or anything other than QML/web apps) be turned into snap packages instead of .deb packages as described here?

Is there any detailed documentation available?


Oh certainly-- here is a detailed walkthrough of how (and why) to create a Python snap.

    Or the python2 plugin, depending on version required of course :) . – Kyle May 4 '16 at 15:31
  • Yes. I used python3 as an example – Alejandro Vera May 4 '16 at 18:19
  • The 'start here' link gives a 404 (page no longer there). – arielf Oct 4 '17 at 20:31
  • Thanks @arielf, fixed. There are better docs for it nowadays anyway. – Kyle Oct 4 '17 at 20:34

The procedure is detailed in a tutorial at Ubuntu Tutorials.

The detailed documentation is available here.
