Ideally, this delay should be minimal, and programmers would be able to make instantaneous changes and improvements to their applications.

In reality, things are more complex – and tend to get more complex as time goes by. For the past six odd years, the Snapcraft team has worked on making their core product modular, efficient and useful to snap developers, extending its functionality and introducing new capabilities over time. In a way, it is a complete product, and it serves its purpose well. But there are ways to make things even better. This article looks at the future of Snapcraft.

The basic concept revolves around breaking Snapcraft apart – into smaller, even more modular and reusable components that can be utilized across a range of different products. The common foundation for this effort is a set of Craft Libraries, as we have already discussed in the Craft Parts blog post. The theory calls for the use of a generic parts builder based on craft-providers and craft-parts, with added Snapcraft functionality as a separate layer. The only question is, what is the airspeed velocity of a swallow how difficult would this be to architect and implement?
