How to export logs from Applications to AWS Cloudwatch

I am using DO Apps and I would like to extend the log lifespan by exporting them into my central log-storage which is AWS Cloudwatch. Unfortunately log-forwarding is enabled only to PaperTrail, Logtail and Datadog which is nice, but does not work for me.

My idea was to setup a Vector ( sidecar to each App and ship logs from it. However I would like to ask first - maybe someone did this before me?
