DigitalOcean Tools

The right tools for the job


Our web-based control panel provides a convenient, point-and-click interface for managing Droplets. But for those times when you want to use the command line, we've got doctl. Our open source doctl utility is a helpful tool for managing Droplets and other resources from the command line. It can greatly reduce the amount of manual interaction with web-based interfaces needed for daily development and administrative tasks.

Explore doctl


Manage your Droplets with greater flexibility using conventional HTTP requests. Take any number of actions or requests with curl commands or use our official API wrappers, including creating multiple Droplets, resizing, rebooting, enabling backups, and more.

  • Create a DC/OS cluster on DigitalOcean using Terraform.

    DC/OS (the datacenter operating system) is an open-source, distributed operating system based on the Apache Mesos distributed systems kernel. DC/OS manages multiple machines—in the cloud or on-site—from a single interface; it also deploys containers, distributed services, and legacy applications into those machines and provides networking, service discovery, and resource management to keep the services running and communicating with each other.
