I've been using this lately at home and it seems like a great option due to its size and scope.
+1 for this, especially now that https://github.com/bontibon/digitalocean-alpine is deprecated
I love Alpine and I love DO. Please DO add alpine as dloplet
I was about to create a bunch of Alpine Linux droplets on Digital Ocean for playing with SourceHut, only to realize that it's not an option.
Alpine is such a lean distribution, I'd love to have it available. Perhaps also optional zfs and btrfs images.
Please add it! Right now we have to use hacky shell scripts to get alpine on DO. It's a great server distro that should be available, especially that way more niche OSes such as Rancher are on DO already.
Great distro, It's definitely should be available from DO images.
We should really have this. It's becoming the de facto OS to work with Docker!
This would be awesome! I would use this a lot.
What would be required for DO to support Alpine?
It's great both as a lightweight base OS and as a base image for e.g. Docker container + it has a security focus, which makes it a great OS for any server application. The setup that I'm particularly envisioning is Alpine as a Docker host running Alpine-based Docker containers, which is a great way of building fast, low-resource and scalable applications. Also, people have gone as far as inventing methods of installing Alpine on Do using the rescue console, so that shows that people really, really want it.
