garethr/digitalocean — version 0.4.0 Dec 3rd 2015

Puppet module for managing droplets on DigitalOcean.

Under the hood this module uses Barge and the V2 API. This module is also available on the Puppet Forge.

Forge Build


The module includes a single type and provider which can be used to create droplets.

droplet { ['test-digitalocean', 'test-digitalocean-1']:
  ensure => present,
  region => 'lon1',
  size   => '512mb',
  image  => 5141286,

The full current list of parameters is:

droplet { ['test-digitalocean', 'test-digitalocean-1']:
  ensure             => present,
  region             => 'lon1',
  size               => '512mb',
  image              => 5141286,
  ssh_keys           => [12345], # note this is an array
  backups            => false,
  ipv6               => false,
  private_networking => false,

Note that for this to work you will need an access token for the V2 API and to put that in an environment variable like so:

export DIGITALOCEAN_ACCESS_TOKEN=yourtokenhere


Currently the module only manages the droplet resource, with some limited experimental suport for domains.
