How to create proxies with Digital Ocean?

I am trying to create my own proxies using DigitalOcean and Python for personal use. I have created the droplet and got the IP address, but I can not figure out how I’d open ports to use, since proxies are used in IP:PORT form. Is there anyway to do this using Python and the DigitalOcean library?

Hey @artyshoe,

Could you take a look at this answer, I have answered: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-turn-droplet-into-https-proxy ?

For the question on the libraries, could you be a little more specific? Maybe give us an example and I will see what I can suggest. Meanwhile, check this URL with all the libraries on DO:
