Sortable provides a DSL for defining sort order on any Ruby object To use it, you just call the sortable method and pass it a list of methods and/or blocks; when you call sort on a collection of these objects, each method/block is evaluated in turn, and the first that provides a non-zero sort value is used.

DESCRIPTION:¶ ↑

Sortable provides a DSL for defining sort order on any Ruby object

To use it, you just call the sortable method and pass it a list of methods and/or blocks; when you call sort on a collection of these objects, each method/block is evaluated in turn, and the first that provides a non-zero sort value is used.

EXAMPLE:¶ ↑

require 'sortable'

class Book
  include Sortable

  attr_accessor :author, :title

  sortable :author, lambda {|book| book.title.sub(/^(The|A|An) /, '')}

  def initialize(author, title)
    self.author = author
    self.title  = title
  end
end

fforde  = Book.new('Fforde', 'Something Rotten')
stroud1 = Book.new('Stroud', 'The Golem\'s Eye')
stroud2 = Book.new('Stroud', 'The Amulet of Samarkand')
colfer  = Book.new('Colfer', 'Artemis Fowl')

[fforde, stroud1, stroud2, colfer].sort #=> colfer, fforde, stroud2, stroud1

INSTALL:¶ ↑

Installation is available with a simple:
