Source

Stable

A stable array sort, because Array#sort() is not guaranteed stable.

MIT licensed.

Node.js CI

Browser CI

From npm

Install with:

npm install stable

Then use it in Node.js or some other CommonJS environment as:

const stable = require('stable')
From the browser

Include stable.js or the minified version stable.min.js in your page, then call stable().

Usage

The default sort is, as with Array#sort, lexicographical:

stable(['foo', 'bar', 'baz']) // => ['bar', 'baz', 'foo'] stable([10, 1, 5]) // => [1, 10, 5]

Unlike Array#sort, the default sort is NOT in-place. To do an in-place sort, use 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]
