The Snap Store Proxy is a smart caching proxy to the Snap Store for your snap devices. Once installed and configured, your devices can be configured to talk to the Snap Store via the proxy. The proxy caches downloads of snaps, acts as a single point of egress for your network, and allows you to override the revisions of snaps in the store.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install snap-store-proxy, simply use the following command:
