Users should be able to perform the entire signup process entirely from the command line via jitsu signup. Right now the signup process is hard to find.

This is already possible through two commands:

  jitsu users create <username>
  jitsu users confirm <username>

The workflow needs to be rethought a little bit. When users first authenticate with jitsu they are prompted for a username:password pair. There is no discoverability of the creating an account. I see a couple of possible options:

  1. Prompt the user asking if they need to create an account or have an account before going through the existing authentication.
  2. On three failures of authentication drop down into the new account creation process
  3. Continue with the authentication we have now, but have a "short-circuit" signal which allows them to exit (like CTRL+X, etc)

This looks like it was resolved by nico's commit. I just performed the whole signup process from Jitsu, and everything seemed quite clear.
