Main library features

Consistent Usage

All the functions share the same API, accepting options and a user callback in a flexible manner. Once you learn the core usage, you only learn the options of the actions you wish to execute.

Everything is a file

No agent to install, no database to depends on. Your project is just another Node.js package easily versionned in Git and any SCM, easily integrated with your CI and CD DevOps tools.


Call a function multiple times and expect the same result. You’ll be informed of any modifications and can retrieve defailed information.


Learn fast. Source code is self-documented with the most commons usages enriched by many examples. Don’t forget to look at the tests as well.


Deliberatly sacrifying speed for a maximum of strength, ease of use and flexibility. The simple API allows us to constantly add new functionnality without affecting the API.


Built from small and reusable actions imbricated into complex system. It follows the Unix philosophie of building small small single-building blocks with a clear API.

SSH native support

All the functions run transparently over SSH. Look at the tests, they are all executed both locally and remotely.


Advanced reports can be optained by providing a log function, listening to stdout and stderr streams, generating diffs and backups.


Feel confident. The modules are used in production for years and the code is enforced by an extensive test coverage.


The package is open sourced with one of the least restrictive license. Get involved and contributes to open source development by sending pull requests and requesting commercial support from Adaltas.

Example installation of Redis

// User configuration
const options = {
  // url: '',
  // config: {
  //   bind: '',
  //   port: 6379,
  //   ...
  // }
// Nikita instantiation
// Activate CLI reporting
// Define and execute a custom Redis action
.call({header: 'Redis'}, options, function({options}){
  // Default options
  if(!options.url){ options.url = '' }
  if(!options.config){ options.config = {} }
  if(!options.config['bind']){ options.config['bind'] = '' }
  if(!options.config['protected-mode']){ options.config['protected-mode'] = 'yes' }
  if(!options.config['port']){ options.config['port'] = 6379 }
  // Do the job
    header: 'Download',
    source: options.url,
