The official DigitalOcean Go API client

Godo is a Go client library for accessing the DigitalOcean V2 API.

You can view the client API docs here:

Create a new DigitalOcean client, then use the exposed services to
access different parts of the DigitalOcean API.


Currently, Personal Access Token (PAT) is the only method of
authenticating with the API. You can manage your tokens
at the Digital Ocean Control Panel Applications Page.

You can then use your token to create a new client:

import ""

pat := "mytoken"
t := &oauth.Transport{
    Token: &oauth.Token{AccessToken: pat},

client := godo.NewClient(t.Client())


To create a new Droplet:

dropletName := "super-cool-droplet"

createRequest := &godo.DropletCreateRequest{
    Name:   dropletName,
    Region: "nyc3",
    Size:   "512mb",
    Image: godo.DropletCreateImage{
        Slug: "ubuntu-14-04-x64",

newDroplet, _, err := client.Droplets.Create(createRequest)

if err != nil {
    fmt.Printf("Something bad happened: %s\n\n", err)
    return err
