So the Mir interface has landed in snapd. This means that the mir-server snap can be downloaded and taken into use in a fully confined mode, along with matching mir-client snap. I’ve been keeping updated instructions here on the best way to operate and develop your mir-client snap. The one caveat is there’s still a snappy bug (launchpad bug# 1577897) with snap auto-connections. This means that you have to manually make the plug-slot connection of the mir-server and mir-client, and then restart the mir-client service. I’ve just uploaded a new mir-server snap which is on Mir version 0.23.5, it should be reflected in the store soon.
At any rate, I’d love to hear back from folks trying this out. In the coming weeks I’m hoping to spend some time on dragonboard and getting this working there.
