Is it possible to install doctl on a droplet?
Hi, I’m quite new to back-end development, coming straight from front-end. I was wondering if it’s at all possible to install doctl on a droplet to automate the creation of more droplets/apps.
My idea was to offer a dashboard to clients where they can 1 click create apps. The system would then run doctl app create commands with a dynamically generated yaml file to deploy a site to a droplet/app. Of course I’d have the logic to assign more than 1 app per droplet as they are fairly lightweight mostly-static gatsby apps.
Would this be the ideal way of doing things or am I missing something crucial? If so, should I be deploying this idea through the new App platform, spaces, or droplets?
