Creating an App using the API

In addition to creating a Droplet from the AzuraCast 1-Click App using the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API. As an example, to create a 4GB AzuraCast Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You need to either save your API access token) to an environment variable or substitute it in the command below.

curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
         -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
        '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image": "azuracast-20-04"}' \

Getting Started After Deploying AzuraCast

AzuraCast 1-Click droplets are ready to go out of the box. Visit your new droplet’s web interface at http://your_droplet_public_ipv4 to finish setup by creating an administrator account and setting up your first station. You may need to wait a minute or two for services to be set up for the first time.
