initial version

The catkin command line tool is part of the python-catkin-tools Ubuntu/Debian package, which must be installed separately from the normal installation instructions of ROS. You can install it like this:

sudo apt-get install python-catkin-tools

After that it will work even if you don't source the /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash file first.
