Bug Description

snapcraft.io shows the categories each app is in, e.g. https://snapcraft.io/skype shows the Skype snap in the "Productivity" and "Social" categories.

This information is not returned from /v2/find, so other clients can't show this.

The categories do not align with gnome's categories. What's the plan for that? Is exposing these different categories _useful_ for GUI stores?

Robert Ancell (robert-ancell) wrote :

For GNOME software we map the Snap categories to the XDG ones. In Snap Store (https://snapcraft.io/snap-store) we use the Snap categories.

In both cases currently you can browse from a category to an app, but not the reverse. With this change we should be able to go both directions in GNOME Software and Snap Store.
