Getting Started

If you're using Bundler, you can add sort_authority to your Gemfile:

gem 'sort_authority'

Or manually install the gem using:

gem install sort_authority

Usage

# bad
['9 Main Street', '10 Main Street'].sort
# => ['10 Main Street', '9 Main Street']

# good!
require 'sort_authority/ext/enumerable'
['9 Main Street', '10 Main Street'].natural_sort
# => ['9 Main Street', '10 Main Street']
