Allow applications to be added via One-Click after creation

I would like to be able to add applications to my server via one-click install after droplet creation. While I am plenty familiar and comfortable installing software via command-line, it would be a time save for me to be able to simply click MySQL,or PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis, Apache HTTPD, nginx, etc. to have it installed with production ready configurations that I can then tweak, since most of those applications as installed from the traditional sources are configured more for development.

    Unfortunately we draw a clear line that we do not have access to customer servers, as a result of this we can't initiate any installs after the droplet is created. But we do offer one-click application install images as well as the ability to snapshot a droplet after you have it configured how you like so that you can then spin up new droplets from that image. Thanks, Moisey

    I couldn't see why not, this would make DigitalOcean a much more attractive option to developers, if we can deploy apps faster too then that increases our deploy time even further.

    I understand that you wouldn't want to access customers droplets but would it be so hard to create a backup snapshot, install the app, then if the install goes pear-shaped restore to the snapshot.
