Delay the grunt build chain with callbacks

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-wait --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-wait');

The "wait" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named wait to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
    wait: {
        options: {
            delay: 500
        },
        pause: {      
            options: {
                before : function(options) {
                    console.log('pausing %dms', options.delay);
                },
                after : function() {
                    console.log('pause end');
                }
            }
        },
        random: {      
            options: {
                delay: 10,
                after : function() {
                    console.log('gamble');
                    return Math.random() < 0.05 ? false : true;
                }
            }
        }
    }
})
