Prettier Plugin Sorted List

This is a plugin for Prettier that sorts lists of string literals in your JavaScript or TypeScript code. This tool is designed to make your code cleaner and more readable.

Installation

Firstly, you'll need to install Prettier:

npm install --save-dev prettier

Then, install prettier-plugin-sorted-list:

npm install --save-dev prettier-plugin-sorted-list

Add a Prettier Configuration File

Create a file named .prettierrc in the root of your project and add the following:

{
  "plugins": ["prettier-plugin-sorted-list"]
}

Usage

In your source code, use a comment directive to indicate the list that needs to be sorted:

let arr = [
  // prettier-sorted-list
  "b",
  "a",
];

Then, when Prettier is run, it will sort the list:

let arr = [
  // prettier-sorted-list
  "a",
  "b",
];

Comment Directives

You can use two types of comment directives, line comments and block comments. You can also add comments after the directive to provide a description of the list.

// prettier-sorted-list

// prettier-sorted-list List of items to be sorted

/* prettier-sorted-list */

Limitations and Future Work

This plugin currently only supports sorting of lists of string literals. Lists containing other types of elements are not supported at this time.

To-do list

  • [ ] Support for sorting lists of numbers
  • [ ] Support for sorting object keys
  • [ ] Support for sorting keys of Map and Set objects

Development and Testing

Implementation Details

To keep this plugin fast, it does not construct an abstract syntax tree (AST) of the entire file. Instead, it uses a regular expression to find the comment directive and then sorts the list using a simple string manipulation algorithm. For future work, it may be necessary to use an AST to support more complex sorting operations.

Testing

A test suite is included with this plugin to ensure proper functioning. To run the tests, execute the following command:

npm run test
