default droplet password

An option to set a default password for new droplets.

This way we don't have to fetch the password from email each time a new droplet is deployed.

You could hook it up to cracklib to force the user to choose something secure.

I create ALOT of droplets on a daily basis, for a variety of reasons.

    Unfortunately that would be very insecure and could lead to a lot of compromised servers. Instead we recommend using SSH keys for access which we fully support which will allow you to create servers and access them immediately without a password. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-ssh-keys-with-digitalocean-droplets Thanks, Moisey
