Ogar is an open source implementation of the server writen in Node.js and available on GitHub. The full documentation is available there. You can get it up and running pretty quickly if you already have Node.js installed. If not, follow this tutorial or use the Node.js One-Click application available in the control panel.

One Node.js is available, you will also have to install git so that you can grap the source:

  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install git
  • git clone git:// Ogar

Now we can install its dependencies using:

  • cd Ogar/
  • npm install

Finally, we can start Ogar with:

  • node

Now to connect to your private server, visit replacing the highlighted section with the IP address of your Droplet.

This is really just a quick way of getting up and running. If you plan on keeping the server in use for sometime, check out this tutorial for info on how to get your Droplet production ready:
