Question

can I remove a droplet with a curl statement?

I am working on a script that builds an app starting with creating the droplet with a curl command. At the moment I am going to the dashboard after each run and manually deleting the previous droplet. Can this be done via script without DOCTL? like if exists $droplet_id delete droplet ??

Hello, @jefftully

You can use the DigitalOcean API to create and delete droplets via CURL requests.

You can check the official docs here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
