Atom Snap Package


#1

Is anyone using the snap packaged version of Atom?

Are there any advantages to using the snap instead of the official APT packages?

Does it perform as well as the APT version?


#2

The big disadvantage of using Snap instead of an officially supported method is that, if you run into any issues with how Atom gets installed or updates, the dev team and most of the community will not be in a position to help you troubleshoot it. If everything has been set up correctly with the Snap package, you shouldn’t have an issue.
