THIS IS DEPRECATED, ONLY USE FOR DJANGO 1.4 OR BELOW.. FOR 1.5+ USE django-sorting-bootstrap

django-sorting is a pluggable app in the spirit of django-pagination.

It allows you to allow sorting on querysets, without handling them in views.


Inlude `sorting` in your `INSTALLED_APPS`

Put `{% load sorting %}` at top of your templates.

Your templates have two new tags available.


The basic usage is.::

    {% sort_link "link text" "field_name" %}
    {% auto_sort queryset %}

The basic usage is.::
    {% sort_link "link text" "field_name" %}

Sort link outputs a link which will sort on the given field. The field to sort on should be
a database field, or something which `.order_by` of queryset would work.

Example usage.::
    {% sort_link "Name" "name" %}
It may also be used as.

    {% sort_link "link text" "field_name" "vis_name" %}

    {% sort_link "Name" "name" "what" %}
This is useful if you do not wnat to expose your database fields in urls.


Basic usage is.::

    {% auto_sort queryset %}

It sorts the queryset in place and replaces the queryset by the sorted queryset.

This needs to be called prior to a slice has been taken from a queryset.
(Ordering can not be done after the slice has been taken.) In particular this will
not work with generuc view `object_list`.

This code is available under a GPL or a BSD license.

There is a well used Django sorting library at . So why another?
Well, I had this library written before I was aware of this library. :)
The libraries are fairly close in functionality. But I think mine is better in two ways. :)

0. It doesnt use a middleware
1. It allows setting a visible name which is independent of the database field.
