    cake-async

    Asynchronous cakefile tasks.

    Simply add the async keyword before a task definition, and call the done callback once finished.

    To run async tasks, use invoke async 'task_name' - there are no callbacks, instead invocations are queued and guaranteed to run in order within a task.

    The function given to async.end() will be called when all tasks have finished.

    Without

    task 'compile', ->
        compileAsync files
    
    task 'minify', ->
        minifyAsync files
    
    task 'build', ->
        invoke 'compile'
        invoke 'minify'
        # might or might not work depending on your luck
    

    With cake-async

    async task 'compile', (o, done) ->
        compileAsync files, done
    
    async task 'minify', (o, done) ->
        minifyAsync files, done
    
    task 'build', ->
        invoke async 'compile'
        invoke async 'minify'
        async.end => console.log 'done!'
