then

Function then accepts a closure as argument which will be executed only when the future is successful. The code inside the closure will only generate an event then the closure code is executed. The return value of the closure will be used as the new future value.

The closure will be called with the same arguments as given to the future, except for the first argument, which can be the result of a module.

This function does not generate an event.
