"Graphical snaps" tutorials are live!

I’ve mentioned these tutorials a few times in recent weeks, but they’ve now been accepted onto the Ubuntu tutorials website.

These use Mir (in the form of the mir-kiosk snap) as a Wayland server.

These provide a guide to creating graphical snaps that have a single GUI application running fullscreen on the display. This addresses situations like: Digital signage, Web kiosk, and and other embedded displays (like industrial machine User Interfaces).

If this interests you then the first one to read is: Graphical Snaps for Ubuntu IoT Devices


Note: this isn’t all my work: I did the editorial work on the tutorials, but credit should go to @greyback who did the development work, research and documentation that it is based on.
