As an example, to create a 4GB Open Source Social Network Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You’ll need to either save your API access token to an environment variable or substitute it into the command below.

  curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \

      '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image":"ossn-18-04"}' \
