Using goal with a remote data directory

Is it possible to use goal with a remote data directory as it is with the SDKs? I have a private network running on Digital Ocean that I would like to run goal commands against without shelling into the container

Not easily

See this issue:

It is possible but you’ll have to recompile goal to allow https and even then, there are some spots it uses v1 endpoints which aren’t well supported on remote APIs.

Please give the issue a thumbs up if its something you’re interested in

Some of the goal commands cannot be invoked over http.

Two examples for that are the starting / stopping of a node, where a new process needs to be created/destroyed.
