Getting a DigitalOcean Droplet ready for Laravel

When I am out and about, I tend to fire up a DigitalOcean droplet to do all my work on because of dodgy public WIFI - but I always need to play around and configure them manually. Here are my steps I take along with a quick and easy script to automate this!


Serverless Websites

I've been interested in serverless web systems ever since I was asked by a client to setup a store on the popular p2p marketplace called OpenBazaar. The idea fascinated me - instead of connecting to normal servers, you connect to peers - like Torrents - and download the websites from them. The only issue for me with this system was that you had to download software to do it. This got me thinking - can you do the same sort of things with normal websites, without downloading new software?
