DigitalOcean Indicator screenhot

The other weekend I took some time to play around with the DigitalOcean API, and this is what resulted. The DigitalOcean indicator allows you to monitor and manage your droplets directly from your panel. You can:

  • Quickly see which droplets are active.
  • Reboot, power on, and/or power down you droplets.
  • Copy your droplet’s IP address with a click for easy access.

You can install it on Ubuntu from my PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrewsomething/digitalocean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install digitalocean-indicator

It leverages python-digitalocean, an API wrapper by Lorenzo Setale. It’s also package for Ubuntu in my PPA.

It’s just a quick hack, but it begins to show you what’s possible with the API. I hope someone else finds it useful.
