Laravel DigitalOcean

Laravel DigitalOcean was created by, and is maintained by Graham Campbell, and is a DigitalOceanV2 bridge for Laravel. It utilises my Laravel Manager package. Feel free to check out the change log, releases, security policy, license, code of conduct, and contribution guidelines.

Laravel DigitalOcean requires PHP 7.2-7.4. This particular version supports Laravel 6-7.

DigitalOcean L5.1 L5.2 L5.3 L5.4 L5.5 L5.6 L5.7 L5.8 L6 L7

To get the latest version, simply require the project using Composer. You will need to install at least one of the following dependencies for each driver:

  • The buzz connector requires kriswallsmith/buzz (^0.15).
  • The guzzle connector requires guzzlehttp/guzzle (^6.3).

So, for example, if using the guzzle driver:

$ composer require graham-campbell/digitalocean guzzlehttp/guzzle

Once installed, if you are not using automatic package discovery, then you need to register the GrahamCampbell\DigitalOcean\DigitalOceanServiceProvider service provider in your config/app.php.

You can also optionally alias our facade:

        'DigitalOcean' => GrahamCampbell\DigitalOcean\Facades\DigitalOcean::class,


Laravel DigitalOcean requires connection configuration.

To get started, you'll need to publish all vendor assets:

$ php artisan vendor:publish

This will create a config/digitalocean.php file in your app that you can modify to set your configuration. Also, make sure you check for changes to the original config file in this package between releases.

There are two config options:

Default Connection Name

This option ('default') is where you may specify which of the connections below you wish to use as your default connection for all work. Of course, you may use many connections at once using the manager class. The default value for this setting is 'main'.

DigitalOcean Connections

This option ('connections') is where each of the connections are setup for your application. Example configuration has been included, but you may add as many connections as you would like.



This is the class of most interest. It is bound to the ioc container as 'digitalocean' and can be accessed using the Facades\DigitalOcean facade. This class implements the ManagerInterface by extending AbstractManager. The interface and abstract class are both part of my Laravel Manager package, so you may want to go and checkout the docs for how to use the manager class over at that repo. Note that the connection class returned will always be an instance of \DigitalOcean\Client.


This facade will dynamically pass static method calls to the 'digitalocean' object in the ioc container which by default is the DigitalOceanManager class.


This class contains no public methods of interest. This class should be added to the providers array in config/app.php. This class will setup ioc bindings.

Real Examples

Here you can see an example of just how simple this package is to use. Out of the box, the default adapter is main. After you enter your authentication details in the config file, it will just work:

use GrahamCampbell\DigitalOcean\Facades\DigitalOcean;
// you can alias this in config/app.php if you like

// we're done here - how easy was that, it just works!

// this example is simple, and there are far more methods available

The digitalocean manager will behave like it is a \DigitalOceanV2\DigitalOceanV2 class. If you want to call specific connections, you can do with the connection method:

use GrahamCampbell\DigitalOcean\Facades\DigitalOcean;

// the alternative connection is the other example provided in the default config

// let's check how long we have until the limit will reset

With that in mind, note that:

use GrahamCampbell\DigitalOcean\Facades\DigitalOcean;

// writing this:

// is identical to writing this:

// and is also identical to writing this:

// this is because the main connection is configured to be the default
DigitalOcean::getDefaultConnection(); // this will return main

// we can change the default connection
DigitalOcean::setDefaultConnection('alternative'); // the default is now alternative

If you prefer to use dependency injection over facades like me, then you can easily inject the manager like so:

use GrahamCampbell\DigitalOcean\DigitalOceanManager;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\App; // you probably have this aliased already

class Foo
    protected $digitalocean;

    public function __construct(DigitalOceanManager $digitalocean)
        $this->digitalocean = $digitalocean;

    public function bar()


For more information on how to use the \DigitalOceanV2\DigitalOceanV2 class we are calling behind the scenes here, check out the docs at, and the manager class at

Further Information

There are other classes in this package that are not documented here. This is because they are not intended for public use and are used internally by this package.


If you discover a security vulnerability within this package, please send an email to Graham Campbell at All security vulnerabilities will be promptly addressed. You may view our full security policy here.
