How do I create a Space using the Digital Ocean API?

In the Digital Ocean API reference I see information on creating a CDN endpoint, but not for actually creating a Space (Object Storage Solution). Is this the same thing? If not, can someone point me to the correct documentation? Thanks!

I think you are better of using the Amazon S3 SDK .

They do show at how a bucket using a put request winds up being:

PUT / HTTP/1.1

x-amz-acl: public-read
x-amz-content-sha256: c6f1fc479f5f690c443b73a258aacc06ddad09eca0b001e9640ff2cd56fe5710
x-amz-date: 20170710T173143Z
Authorization: AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 Credential=II5JDQBAN3JYM4DNEB6C/20170710/nyc3/s3/aws4_request,SignedHeaders=host;x-amz-acl;x-amz-content-sha256;x-amz-date,Signature=6cab03bef74a80a0441ab7fd33c829a2cdb46bba07e82da518cdb78ac238fda5


but they do not show/have doctl commands for spaces

Seems as Spaces is compatible with S3 you should use their SDK for Spaces.
