Following on from the recent Dev Servers announcement, we've added support for deploying DigitalOcean droplets.

It works much the same way with the benefit that you can take advantage of DigitalOcean's pricing starting from just $5 a month for a droplet. Each droplet can be used to host multiple projects managed using ShiftEdit. Here's a reminder of how to get started:

Click on the Site menu and then Servers

Add a new server with DigitalOcean, you will be prompted to allow write access from ShiftEdit.

Create a new site and select the "Server" tab under "Server type". Alternatively click a repository from those listed on the new tab page.

Save the site and you're done. Your site will be created with it's own unique url.
