doctl projects [flags]


The subcommands of doctl projects allow you to create, manage, and assign resources to your projects.

Projects allow you to organize your DigitalOcean resources (like Droplets, Spaces, load balancers, domains, and floating IPs) into groups that fit the way you work. You can create projects that align with the applications, environments, and clients that you host on DigitalOcean.
