A stable array sort, because
Array#sort() is not guaranteed stable.
npm install stable
Then use it in Node.js or some other CommonJS environment as:
const stable = require('stable')
The default sort is, as with
stable(['foo', 'bar', 'baz']) // => ['bar', 'baz', 'foo'] stable([10, 1, 5]) // => [1, 10, 5]
Array#sort, the default sort is NOT in-place. To do an in-place
stable.inplace, which otherwise works the same:
const arr = [10, 1, 5] stable(arr) === arr // => false stable.inplace(arr) === arr // => true
A comparator function can be specified:
// Regular sort() compatible comparator, that returns a number. // This demonstrates the default behavior. const lexCmp = (a, b) => String(a).localeCompare(b) stable(['foo', 'bar', 'baz'], lexCmp) // => ['bar', 'baz', 'foo'] // Boolean comparator. Sorts `b` before `a` if true. // This demonstrates a simple way to sort numerically. const greaterThan = (a, b) => a > b stable([10, 1, 5], greaterThan) // => [1, 5, 10]
