# jitsu
CLI tool for easily deploying node.js applications on the Nodejitsu platform
+## Overview
+
+[Jitsu](http://github.com/nodejitsu/jitsu) is a [Command Line Tool (CLI)](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command-line_interface) for interacting with the Nodejitsu platform. It's open-source and easy to use. We've designed Jitsu to be suitable for command line beginners, but still be powerful and extensible enough for production usage. If you aren't a fan of the command line or don't have terminal access you can still do everything Jitsu can do through our web admin, [Samurai](http://nodejitsu.com).
+
+Jitsu requires the npm, the node package manager.
+
+
