// default sort 
gulp.src('./src/js/**/*.js')
    .pipe(sort())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./build/js'));
 
// pass in a custom comparator function 
gulp.src('./src/js/**/*.js')
    .pipe(sort(customComparator))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./build/js'));
 
// sort descending 
gulp.src('./src/js/**/*.js')
    .pipe(sort({
         asc: false
    }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./build/js'));
 
// sort with a custom comparator 
gulp.src('./src/js/**/*.js')
    .pipe(sort({
        comparator: function(file1, file2) {
            if (file1.path.indexOf('build') > -1) {
                return 1;
            }
            if (file2.path.indexOf('build') > -1) {
                return -1;
            }
            return 0;
        }
    }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./build/js'));
 
// sort with a custom sort function 
var stable = require('stable');
gulp.src('./src/js/**/*.js')
    .pipe(sort({
        customSortFn: function(files, comparator) {
            return stable(files, comparator);
        }
    }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./build/js'));

Options

gulp-sort takes in an optional comparator function, or dictionary with following params:

asc

Sort ascending. Defaults to true. Specify false to sort descending.

comparator

Comparator function to use. comparator(file1, file2). Defaults to localeCompare of file paths.

customSortFn

Use customSortFn in order to control the sorting yourself (useful for stable sorts).

customSortFn signature is as follows:

customSortFn(<files>, <comparator>)

  • files being the vinyl file objects that were passed in
  • comparator is the default comparator used, or a custom one that was passed as param

This function is expected to return back the sorted list of files.
