Hi I’m simply looking to store a docker image in the container registry and then at set intervals, say once a week, spin up a container from that image and run the container normally preferably via a function. I know how to do this easily in aws. It seems the DigitalOcean workflow is more biased towards storing entire application images and then creating droplets to run those apps continuously. Am I going to have to programmatically create a droplet each time I want to run the container?

There isn’t currently a managed product to support this out of the box.
Indeed, what you could do is to use
doctlto spin up a new Droplet, run your container and then destroy the Droplet:
The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.
Hope that helps!
