Installing snap on Debian

On Debian 9 (Stretch), snap can be installed directly from the command line:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install snapd

If the sudo command isn’t installed (usually because a root password was provided at install time), you can install snap by first switching to the root account:

$ su root
$ apt update
$ apt install snapd

Snap is currently unavailable on versions of Debian prior to 9.
