This module exports $.Jscex as a jQuery plugin, providing an $.async helper that compiles a regular function into one that returns a Promise object.

Functions defined with $.async has access to an extra $await keyword, which can implicitly wait for other Promise objects.

Please see example.js for a sample usage, and type make demo to see it in action.

The source code is in src directory and written in LiveScript. Note that LiveScript is not a runtime dependency of this module; it's only used for development.

For use in client-side browser environments, please see examples in the samples directory.
