Ultra Fast HTML Table Sorting Library – sortable.js

Description:

The sortable.js JavaScript library enables any static or dynamic HTML table to be sortable. Blazing fast and simple to implement.

How to use it:

1. Import the stylesheet sortable.min.css and JavaScript sortable.min.js into the HTML document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="sortable.min.css" />
<script src="sortable.min.js"></script>

2. Add the CSS class sortable to your HTML table and the library will take care of the rest. Note that the HTML table MUST have thead and tbody elements.

<table class="sortable">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Month</th>
      <th>Savings</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>January</td>
      <td>$100</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>February</td>
      <td>$80</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
  <tfoot>
    <tr>
      <td>Sum</td>
      <td>$180</td>
    </tr>
  </tfoot>
</table>

3. Ignore certain table columns using the no-sort class.

<table class="sortable">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Month</th>
      <th class="no-sort">Savings</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>January</td>
      <td>$100</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>February</td>
      <td>$80</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
  <tfoot>
    <tr>
      <td>Sum</td>
      <td>$180</td>
    </tr>
  </tfoot>
</table>

4. You can also sort any data (like dates, file size) using the data-sort attribute:

<table class="sortable">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Month</th>
      <th class="no-sort">Savings</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>January</td>
      <td data-sort="100">$100</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>February</td>
      <td data-sort="80">$80</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
  <tfoot>
    <tr>
      <td>Sum</td>
      <td data-sort="180">$180</td>
    </tr>
  </tfoot>
</table>

5. Use the data-sort-col attribute to sort different columns.

<thead>
  <tr>
    <th></th>
    <th>Category</th>
    <th class="show_name">Show</th>
    <th colspan="2">Overall</th>
    <th colspan="2" data-sort-col="5">On Our Dates</th>
    <th data-sort-col="7">First Sold Out</th>
  </tr>
</thead>
