Sorting algorithms in JavaScript (ES5 and ES6)

This repository is part of a series of posts about sorting algorithms reimplemented in JavaScript that I made on my blog.

About the #sorting-algorithms series

The #sorting-algorithms series is a collection of posts about reimplemented sorting algorithms in JavaScript.

If you are not familiar with sorting algorithms, a quick introduction and the full list of reimplemented sorting algorithms can be found in the introduction post of the series on sorting algorithms in JavaScript.

If you feel comfortable with the concept of each sorting algorithms and only want to see the code, have a look at the summary post of the series. It removes all explanations and contains only the JavaScript code for all sorting algorithms discussed in the series.

The sorting algorithms in the series

  • Bubble sort
  • Selection sort
  • Insertion sort
  • Shellsort
  • Merge sort
  • Quicksort

A good way to compare all of them

Unlike the data structures, all sorting algorithms have the same goal and they can all take the same input data. So, for every sorting algorithms of the series, we are going sort an array of 10 numbers from 1 to 10.

By doing so we will be able to compare the different sorting algorithms more easily. Sorting algorithms are very sensitive to the input data so we will also try different input data to see how they affect the performances.
