Hello everybody,

the Snappy Playpen [1] has been up and running for about three weeks now
and we've had many pieces of software added to it (and lots more in
progress). I'm quite happy that after a first rush of new snaps, we are
still seeing new snaps being added and since a few days we are seeing a
steady stream of improvements and some consolidation happening in terms
of common launchers, etc. and more generally a common understanding of

So I thought at this stage it would make sense to take a closer look at
what we could already learn from the snaps in the repository. Here is a
quick document I put together:


The feedback we received so far is that it's quite useful.

Bearing in mind that some of the code examples will change over time,
what do you think where we could host documentation like this or how
could we make it more official?

Have a great day,
