    API

    create

    When creating a sorter object you initialise it with the array to sort.

    const array = [];
    const sorter(array);

    You can also provide additional optional locale and options arguments for string comparisons localCompare.

    const array = [];
    const sorter(array, 'en', { caseFirst: 'lower});

    When initially creating the sorter 3 functions will be exposed by it:

    • orderBy
    • orderByDescending
    • sort

    orderBy

    Will add an instruction to order objects in ascending order using the given property filter

    sorter.orderBy(x => x.firstName);

    A custom comparison function can also be provided

    sorter.orderBy(x => x.firstName, (a, b) => { return a - b; });

    This function will expose the following 3 functions:

    • thenBy
    • thenByDescending
    • sort

    orderByDescending

    Will add an instruction to order objects in descending order using the given property filter

    sorter.orderByDescending(x => x.firstName);

    A custom comparison function can also be provided

    sorter.orderByDescending(x => x.firstName, (a, b) => { return a - b; });

    This function will expose the following 3 functions:

    • thenBy
    • thenByDescending
    • sort

    thenBy

    Will add an additional instruction to sort in ascending order using the given property filter

    sorter
      .orderBy(x => x.firstName)
      .thenBy(x => x.surname);

    A custom comparison function can also be provided

    sorter
      .orderBy(x => x.firstName)
      .thenBy(x => x.surname, (a, b) => { return a - b; });

    This function will expose the following 3 functions:

    • thenBy
    • thenByDescending
    • sort

    thenByDescending

    Will add an additional instruction to sort in descending order using the given property filter

    sorter
      .orderBy(x => x.firstName)
      .thenByDescending(x => x.surname);

    A custom comparison function can also be provided

    sorter
      .orderBy(x => x.firstName)
      .thenByDescending(x => x.surname, (a, b) => { return a - b; });

    This function will expose the following 3 functions:

    • thenBy
    • thenByDescending
    • sort

    sort

    Executing the function will sort the array based on the given instructions.

    sorter
      .orderBy(x => x.firstName)
      .sort();
