Arguments

names

(character) Names of the droplets. The human-readable string you wish to use when displaying the Droplet name. The name, if set to a domain name managed in the DigitalOcean DNS management system, will configure a PTR record for the Droplet. The name set during creation will also determine the hostname for the Droplet in its internal configuration. Default: picks a random name from words if none supplied.

size

(character) Size slug identifier. See sizes() for a complete list. Default: s-1vcpu-1gb, the smallest

region

(character) The unique slug identifier for the region that you wish to deploy in. See regions() for a complete list. Default: sfo2

ssh_keys

(character) A character vector of key names, an integer vector of key ids, or NULL, to use all keys in your account. Accounts with the corresponding private key will be able to log in to the droplet. See keys() for a list of the keys that you've added. Default: NULL

backups

(logical) Enable backups. A boolean indicating whether automated backups should be enabled for the droplet. Automated backups can only be enabled when the droplet is created, and cost extra. Default: FALSE

ipv6

(logical) A boolean indicating whether IPv6 is enabled on the droplet.

private_networking

(logical) Use private networking. Private networking is currently only available in certain regions. Default: FALSE

tags

(character) A vector of tag names to apply to the Droplet after it is created. Tag names can either be existing or new tags. Default: list()

wait

If TRUE (default), wait until droplet has been initialised and is ready for use. If set to FALSE we return a droplet object right away after droplet creation request has been sent. Note that there won't be an IP address in the object yet. Note that waiting means we ping the DigitalOcean API to check on the status of your droplet, which uses up your API requests. The option do.wait_time can be set to any positive integer to determine how many seconds between pings. The default is 1 sec. Note that if you are creating droplets in a loop, parallel or otherwise, set do.wait_time within the loop instead of outside of it.

image

(character/numeric) The image ID of a public or private image, or the unique slug identifier for a public image. This image will be the base image for your droplet. See images() for a complete list. Default: ubuntu-18-04-x64

...

Additional options passed down to POST

Value

Two or more droplet objects

Missing droplet ID

If you get a droplet object back without an IP address, the IP address was not assigned when the payload was returned by DigitalOcean. Simply run d <- droplet(d$id) to update your droplet object and the IP address will populate.

Examples

if (FALSE) { # if no names given, creates two droplets with random names docklets_create() # give names docklets_create(names = c('drop1', 'drop2')) docklets_create(names = c('drop3', 'drop4')) }
