DigitalOcean's web based control panel provides a convenient, point-and-click interface for managing Droplets. There are many times, however, when a command-line tool may be a preferable alternative. doctl, the official DigitalOcean command-line client, leverages the DigitalOcean API to provide access to most account and Droplet features.
