Sorting large datasets

branch: master


Build Status

Sorted is a simple object that will take an sql order string and a url sort string to let you sort large datasets over many pages (using will_paginate or kaminari) without losing state.


Generate a sorted link with the email attribute:

link_to_sorted "Email", :email

Works the same as the link_to method except a second argument for the sort attribute is needed.

Ruby 1.8.7 Rails 3.x

gem 'sorted', '~> 0.4.3'


Using the sorted method with the optional default order argument:

@users = User.sorted(params[:sort], "email ASC").page(params[:page])
