Creating an App using the API

In addition to creating a Droplet from the Repman 1-Click App using the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API. As an example, to create a 4GB Repman 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": "buddy-repman-18-04"}' \
