How to deploy and execute one-off jobs on droplets?
I have a queue of tasks and I would like to start a number of droplets (via API) that will process these tasks. To achieve that, after droplet starts, it needs to download an executor, run the job for a day and then kill itself. What is the best way to achieve that?
I found documentation about cloud-init script with userdata and boot script, but I’m not sure they are the most suitable for the job running. Is there any other approach?
