Question

How do I build on my droplet?

After creating my first droplet I managed to scrape though building my server with the following videos https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfdtiltiRHWGm8EAUXl2oBk5zjuvOTxsy

I want to do this with one file like the way I use Homestead locally. A simple up file on the server and all is installed. Are there any straightforward tutorials (for a newbie) on how to do this?

Thanks

It sounds like what you might be looking for are user-scripts. We have a number of them available on GitHub: https://github.com/digitalocean/do_user_scripts These are scripts that you can paste into the “user-data” section when building a droplet, and are either written in bash or as a yaml file. Alternatively, you can write a script in Fabric to setup and install your server components.

What type of programs are you attempting to setup?
