DigitalOcean API library & CLI
(Until v1.0 is released, backwards compatibility will be broken at will.)
- Individual methods for every operation listed in the API docs plus methods for making arbitrary “freeform” requests or actions
- Methods for waiting for multiple droplets to come up or multiple actions to complete in parallel (and if you get tired of waiting, you can hit Cntrl-C to make the methods return immediately)
- Connection pooling via requests’ Session objects
- Paginated results are returned as generators that make requests when necessary, so your account’s entire action history isn’t fetched all at once
- A command-line interface to all of the above that outputs JSON objects in the same format as used by the API (perfect for massaging with jq!)
- When creating droplets from the command line, new SSH public keys can be specified without having to register them explicitly beforehand.
