Node.js - Taskist Glues Project Configuration and Tasks Together

Nothing is more annoying than noticing that a cronjob doesn't run because you misspelled something in your configuration. Generally I tend to structure my configuration and tasks in a certain way. I thought it might be nice to make something about the misspelling issue. As a result taskist was born.

It is a very simple little library that provides a bit of extra safety when running tasks. Internally it uses node-schedule and supports both verbose and cron syntax. The library is still in early stages but it should be at least safe enough to try if nothing else.
