Eclipse Kura™, An OSGi-based Application Framework for M2M Service Gateways
Until recently, machine-to-machine projects have been approached as embedded systems
designed around custom hardware, custom software, and custom network connectivity.
The challenge of developing such projects was given by the large customization
and integration costs and the small re-usability across similar engagements.
The results were often proprietary systems leveraging proprietary protocols.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), and the latest releases, Linux Mint 19 (Tara) and Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu. To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either restart your machine, or log out and in again, to complete the installation.
To install Kura™, simply use the following command:
