Snappy Ubuntu Core Now Supports Raspberry Pi 2’s GPIO And I2C

Kyle Fazzari, one of the Canonical developers has announced that Snappy Ubuntu Core has received support for Raspberry Pi 2’s GPIO or I2C, meaning that the Snappy Scope permits the users to list the installed .snap packages and install and uninstall new snaps.

If you don’t know yet, Snappy Ubuntu Core is the Ubuntu system for the Internet of Things and is designed to run on all sorts of embedded devices. Also, to remove the missing compatibility issues, it uses .snap packages as a replacement for Debian’s .deb packages.

Unlike the debs, the snap packages provide all the needed libraries local and permits the users to install new software isolated, in a way that does not affect the entire system.
