Unlock LUKS remotely at boot

I need to restart and access my server remotely. The server partition is LUKS encrypted and so far I haven't found a way to decrypt it remotely. I have found a script, https://github.com/gheja/early-ssh , which looks perfect for the task, but the repo has been not updated in the last 6 years and apparently it doesn't work on all Linux distro, and there is no info whether or not it is working on Mint.

My questions are
1) Have you tried early-ssh on Mint? Does it work?
2) Can you point me to a working guide on how to unlock LUKS partitions remotely at boot using Mint 20?
