    Stable

    A stable array sort, because Array#sort() is not guaranteed stable.

    MIT licensed.

    Node.js CI

    Browser CI

    From npm

    Install with:

    npm install stable

    Then use it in Node.js or some other CommonJS environment as:

    const stable = require('stable')

    From the browser

    Include stable.js or the minified version stable.min.js in your page, then call stable().

    Usage

    The default sort is, as with Array#sort, lexicographical:

    stable(['foo', 'bar', 'baz'])  // => ['bar', 'baz', 'foo']
    stable([10, 1, 5])             // => [1, 10, 5]

    Unlike Array#sort, the default sort is NOT in-place. To do an in-place sort, use stable.inplace, which otherwise works the same:

    const arr = [10, 1, 5]
    stable(arr) === arr          // => false
    stable.inplace(arr) === arr  // => true

    A comparator function can be specified:

    // Regular sort() compatible comparator, that returns a number.
    // This demonstrates the default behavior.
    const lexCmp = (a, b) => String(a).localeCompare(b)
    stable(['foo', 'bar', 'baz'], lexCmp)  // => ['bar', 'baz', 'foo']
     
    // Boolean comparator. Sorts `b` before `a` if true.
    // This demonstrates a simple way to sort numerically.
    const greaterThan = (a, b) => a > b
    stable([10, 1, 5], greaterThan)  // => [1, 5, 10]
