Is there any way to get a parseable list of tasks?

The task output has meta information mixed in with task descriptions. Is there any way to ask ‘gradle’, via the command line, for an easier-to-comsume list of tasks and their associated descriptions? I’d like to generate actions for my editor based on the available tasks a project has.

The best I can come up with right now would be splitting lines on a ‘-’ sequence. But, some tasks don’t have a description.

There is no built-in support for listing tasks in a more machine readable way.

cheers, René
