How do I make a 1-Click installed application

December 14, 2014 998 views

Hello Digital Ocean,

I was rooting around looking for documentation on building a 1-Click application, but I can't seem to find anything. I was thinking it would be a similar process to the "Heroku Button" https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/heroku-button

I would love to learn more,

    When creating a Droplet, there is a WordPress option that will turn the Droplet into a WordPress Server. After creating the Droplet you will receive an email with a link that includes instructions for the One-Click Install.

Currently, the One-Click applications are all maintained by the team here at DO. For some of them, we work closely with the upstream projects. We've got some big plans for opening this up to users and projects in the future. Though for the time being, submitting a feature request on our UserVoice page is the best way to show demand for a new One-Click image.

But lets say I am Wordpress and want to offer Wordpress as a One-Click Install. How do I do that?

What you are looking to do is build a One-Click Installation option that will appear on DO control panel correct?

If so, I don't know if DO allows you to create your custom One-Click installs.

You can contact them directly and ask them
