A new batch of changes has been released for uApp Explorer. I’ve added a new page for rss feeds, which includes a feed for new snaps. Along with the new snap feed, I’ve also added some new filters for snaps. The first filter is the “release filter”. This filter allows you to search for snaps by their targeted releases. Next is the “All Types” option of the types filter, which allows you to search for both snaps and phone apps.

On a more technical note, I changed from using browserify to build the React portion of uApp Explorer to using webpack. With browserify, unfortunately the builds would take a very long time, which made developing a pain. With webpack the builds take ngligable time which makes develoopment much nicer.
