Created in Brazil, Rocket.Chat provides an open source chat solution for organisations of all sizes around the world. Built on open source values and a love of efficiency, Rocket.Chat is driven by a community of contributors and has seen adoption in all aspects of business and education. As Rocket.Chat has evolved, it has been keen to get its platform into the hands of as many users as possible without the difficulties of installation often associated with bespoke Linux deployments.

Install Rocket.chat

By switching to snaps, Rocket.Chat has been able to get its product into the hands of users with as few steps as possible, switching a multi-stage set-up process for a single command and instant installation. As a deployment method, snaps are typically faster to install, easier to create and more secure than competitive packages.

Since creating the Rocket.chat snap, there has been over 100,000 installations and the snap accounts for 42% of all installs making it the most popular deployment method.
