Motivation

This library takes a shot at making sorting in Swift more pleasant. It also allows you to reuse your old NSSortDescriptor instances in Swift.

Examples

let somePeople: [Person] = ...

// Sort by a comparable attribute
let ... = somePeople.sort(sortingBy { $0.firstname })

// Sort by multiple attributes
let ... = somePeople.sort(
  sortingBy { $0.age } <|>
  sortingBy { $0.lastname } <|>
  sortingBy { $0.firstname }
)

// Append any comparator function
let ... = somePeople.sort(
  sortingBy { $0.age } <|>
  { (p1, p2) in p1.wearsGlasses() && !p2.wearsGlasses() }
)

// Reverse compare functions
let ... = somePeople.sort(
  sortingBy(.descending) { $0.age } <|>
  sortingBy { $0.lastname } <|>
  reverseComparator(sortingBy { $0.firstname }) // reverse any compare function
)

// Use an NSSortDescriptor
let ageSortDescriptor = NSSortDescriptor(key: "age", ascending: true)
let ... = somePeople.sort(ageSortDescriptor.toCompareFunction())

// Even Use multiple NSSortDescriptors
let nameSortDescriptors = [
  NSSortDescriptor(key: "lastname", ascending: true),
  NSSortDescriptor(key: "firstname", ascending: true)
]
let ... = somePeople.sort(nameSortDescriptors.toCompareFunction())

See the tests for more examples.
