DigitalOcean API v2 with SSH integration

Python library for managing your Digital Ocean account

The DigitalOcean API allows you to manage Droplets and resources within the DigitalOcean cloud in a simple, programmatic way using conventional HTTP requests. The endpoints are intuitive and powerful, allowing you to easily make calls to retrieve information or to execute actions.

This library starts with a python wrapper for the API and aims to build tools to make it easier to manage, provision, and deploy to Digital Ocean.


  • Full featured: API wrapper covering the published DigitalOcean API v2
  • Tested: integration test coverage against most of the API
  • SSH integration: integrates paramiko library so you can SSH in and issue commands
  • Deployment conveniences: methods like apt, pip, and git for easier deployment
