doctl is the official DigitalOcean command line interface (CLI).
doctl allows you to interact with the DigitalOcean API via the command line. It supports most functionality found in the control panel. You can create, configure, and destroy DigitalOcean resources like Droplets, Kubernetes clusters, firewalls, load balancers, database clusters, domains, and more.

digitalocean/doctl repository on GitHub.
