doctl is the official DigitalOcean command line interface (CLI).
doctl allows you to interact with the DigitalOcean API via the command line. It supports most functionality found in the control panel. You can create, configure, and destroy DigitalOcean resources like Droplets, Kubernetes clusters, firewalls, load balancers, database clusters, domains, and more.
doctl builds are available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
doctl is open source software. Find the source code or report issues at the
digitalocean/doctl repository on GitHub.
