Execute ordered list of functions. Add data-arguments and they will be passed to each function in the list:

import dQ from 'discrete-queue'
const car = { ... }; // Car object definition
dQ ( [ getTheCar, washIt, driveToTheGarage], car ).then ( result => .... )
/*          ^                                 ^               ^
/*          |                Extra data argument              |
            |                                                 |

Task Functions

Every task function will receive two arguments. Task is an ask-for-promise object and controls execution of queue. Resolving the promise will start next task. Data is available for all functions in task list.

let myTask = ( task, data ) => {
           // ... do something here
           task.done ( 'myTaskResult' )   // finishing the task. Provide result if needed 
           // return task.promise // --> if function has asynchronous code and we have to wait until it is done
     }
