Forking the standard one-click applications for private use.

Ubuntu One-Click Install Apps

Hello, I rely heavily on the One-Click apps, in particular, the WordPress/Ubuntu.

However, after getting one setup, I always do the same post-install steps (mainly configuring).

Is there a way to privately fork the one-click apps, so I can pre-config these a little to my linking?

That’s certainly possible with User-data on Droplet creation but it depends on what all you need to pre-config.

Refer:

Alternatively, an easier workaround would be configuring a fresh droplet with everything and then creating a base snapshot of that droplet . This snapshot can be used to spin new droplets further. You will just your own snapshot instead of one-clicks to deploy droplets.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
