Question

Build droplet from Docker image (or similar)

Is it possible to define the contents / configuration of a droplet using a declarative approach?

Basically I would like to use something like a Dockerfile to define the contents of the droplet.

I don’t want to launch docker and containers inside the droplet… I want to maximize the performance and build / rebuild the entire droplet using a declarative approach.

Hi there @collimarco,

I would recommend either using a tool like Ansible to automate your Droplet provisioning or using Cloud-Config for your Initial Server Setup.

I would recommend going through this step by step tutorial here on how to do that:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
