Usage

Reversing

Reversing a comparator is as simple as calling its reverse method. The reverse method will return a new ChainableComparator that does the same thing as the original one in the reverse order.

let values = [2, 3, 1];
let comparator = new BasicComparator<number>().reverse();
values.sort((value1, value2) => comparator.compare(value1, value2));
// values = [3, 2, 1]

Chaining

Chaining comparators is what makes this package really powerful. You can combine multiple comparators to create subsorts in an efficient manner.

interface Obj {
    prop1: number,
    prop2: string
}
let values = [
    { prop1: 1, prop2: 'xylophone' },
    { prop1: 1, prop2: 'baseball' },
    { prop1: 2, prop2: 'hello' }
];
let comparator = new PropertyComparator<Obj, 'prop1'>('prop1', new BasicComparator<number>())
    .reverse()
    .then(new ValueComparator<Obj, string>(obj => obj.prop2, new StringComparator()));
values.sort((value1, value2) => comparator.compare(value1, value2));
//values = [,
//    { prop1: 2, prop2: 'hello' },
//    { prop1: 1, prop2: 'baseball' },
//    { prop1: 1, prop2: 'xylophone' }
//];

Comparators

ChainableComparator

The ChainableComparator is an abstract class that adds the ability to do chaining and reversing of the other comparators.

BasicComparator

The BasicComparator is the simplest of all the comparators and doesn't do anything special except that it can be used internally by other comparators and possesses the ChainableComparator functionality.

let values = [3, 2, 1];
let comparator = new BasicComparator<number>();
values.sort((value1, value2) => comparator.compare(value1, value2));
// values = [1, 2, 3]

StringComparator

The StringComparator is basically a wrapper around Intl.collator for it to work with the rest of the comparators in this package.

let values = ['one', 'two', 'three'];
let comparator = new StringComparator();
values.sort((value1, value2) => comparator.compare(value1, value2));
// values = ['one', 'three', 'two']

PropertyComparator

The PropertyComparator is used to compare objects by a specific property in them. It takes the name of the property to use for the comparison as the first parameter and comparator to perform the comparison as the second parameter.

interface Obj {
    prop: number;
}
let values: Obj[] = [{prop: 2}, {prop: 3}, {prop: 1}];
let comparator = new PropertyComparator<Obj, 'prop'>('prop', new BasicComparator<number>());
values.sort((value1, value2) => comparator.compare(value1, value2));
// values = [{prop: 1}, {prop: 2}, {prop: 3}]

ValueComparator

The ValueComparator is one of the most powerful comparators because it allows you to transform the value prior to comparison or it can simply by used to pluck values out of an object. It takes function that transforms the value to use for the comparison as the first parameter and comparator to perform the comparison as the second parameter.

interface Obj {
    prop: number;
}
let values: Obj[] = [{prop: 2}, {prop: 3}, {prop: 1}];
let comparator = new ValueComparator<Obj, number>(obj => obj.prop, new BasicComparator<number>());
values.sort((value1, value2) => comparator.compare(value1, value2));
// values = [{prop: 1}, {prop: 2}, {prop: 3}]

CustomComparator

The CustomComparator is a utility comparator to convert a regular compare function in to a ChainableComparator.

let values = [2, 3, 1];
let comparator = new CustomComparator<number>((value1, value2) => value1 - value2);
values.sort((value1, value2) => comparator.compare(value1, value2));
// values = [1, 2, 3]
