Snapcraft presents the redesign of the Snap Store page

New Snapcraft Design

Today it's almost exactly a month since we entered Flathub and discovered your new design. The most striking thing was the main page, which since then looks a lot like a software store like GNOME. Now, we have discovered that Snapcraft has done more or less the same thing: update the image of the Snap Store page, although I think it has fallen far short of what its main competitor offers.

La search bar is shorter that days ago, and it is embedded in what would be the header of the web page. One detail: what they have updated has not been the entire website, but the Snap Store section, that is, the snap package store. It can be accessed from here, and the first thing we will see will be the highlights section.

Snapcraft's Snap Store buys a new suit

Search page

On the left there is a section with check boxes for apply a filter. You can mark more than one, and the results that will appear will be those of one or more categories. Below the check boxes there is a drop-down menu from which we can filter by architecture (x86, ARM...).

What has also changed, but a little less, are the pages of each application.

Snapcraft section

Until today, below the icon, name and version of the application we found both the screenshots and the details, the images on the left occupying almost the entire screen and the details on the right edge. Now the details also appear on the right, but from the description, under the screenshots.

This is the second redesign of the Snapcraft Snap Store in a year, and the truth is that it was missing. Not only did it have and I believe still have a less attractive design than Flathub; is that most Linux users prefer flatpak packages. But hey, improvements never hurt, and the Snap Store website has bought a new suit.
