multi_sort Pub Package #

A fast and powerful Flutter package helps you sort a list of objects by one or more properties at the same time.

Why? #

Suppose you have a list of Phones and you want to sort it according to there specification like RAM, Storage, Price, Camera, etc. at the same time similar to Microsoft Excel sorting.

Suppose I have a list of phones as following.

List<Phone> items = [
    Phone("real me 6", 6, 18999, 128),
    Phone("real me 6", 8, 19999, 128),
    Phone("real Note 8", 7, 16999, 128),
    Phone("oppo a9", 4, 13999, 128),
    Phone("real me 6 pro", 6, 17999, 64),
    Phone("Oppo 5as", 2, 8999, 32),
    Phone("Real me 5i", 4, 10999, 64),
    Phone("Poco x2", 6, 18500, 128),
  ]

After sorting in the preference order of first by RAM and then by Storage you will get

[
    Phone("real me 6", 8, 19999, 128),
    Phone("real Note 8", 7, 16999, 128),
    Phone("real me 6", 6, 18999, 128),
    Phone("Poco x2", 6, 18500, 128),
    Phone("real me 6 pro", 6, 17999, 64),
    Phone("oppo a9", 4, 13999, 128),
    Phone("Oppo 5as", 2, 8999, 32),
    Phone("Real me 5i", 4, 10999, 64),
 ]

Using this Flutter Package, you can do this Preference Sort/Multiple Sorts/ Multiple level Sorts at the same time very easily.

Installing #

1. Depend on it #

Add this to your package's pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  multi_sort: ^3.0.0

2. Install it #

You can install packages from the command line:

with Flutter:

$ flutter pub get

Alternatively, your editor might support flutter pub get. Check the docs for your editor to learn more.

3. Import it #

Now in your Dart code, you can use:

import 'package:multi_sort/multi_sort.dart';

Documentation #

  • dynamic preferrence List of properties in which you want to sort the list i.e. List<property> preferrence = ['property1','property2'] first sort the list by property1 then by property2.
  • List<bool> criteria List of booleans that specifies the criteria of sort i.e., For ascending order true and for descending order false.

Usage #

Initialization

List<property> list; // List of Items
List<bool> criteria ; //Criteria List
List<String> preferrence ; //prefrrence List

Now sort the list using multisort

list.multisort(criteria, preferrence);

Example #

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import "package:multi_sort/multi_sort.dart";

void main() {
  runApp(MyApp());
}

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'Flutter Demo',
      theme: ThemeData(
        primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
        visualDensity: VisualDensity.adaptivePlatformDensity,
      ),
      home: ExampleApp(),
    );
  }
}

class ExampleApp extends StatefulWidget {
  ExampleApp({Key key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  _ExampleAppState createState() => _ExampleAppState();
}

/// Class of Items
class Items {
  String name;
  int ram;
  int price;
  int storage;
  Items(this.name, this.ram, this.price, this.storage);

  ///Mapping the properties
  Map<String, dynamic> _toMap() {
    return {'name': name, 'price': price, 'ram': ram, 'storage': storage};
  }

  ///get function to get the properties of Item
  dynamic get(String propertyName) {
    var _mapRep = _toMap();
    if (_mapRep.containsKey(propertyName)) {
      return _mapRep[propertyName];
    }
    throw ArgumentError('propery not found');
  }
}

class _ExampleAppState extends State<ExampleApp> {
  //List of Items
  List<Items> items = [
    Items("real me 6", 6, 18999, 128),
    Items("real me 6", 8, 19999, 128),
    Items("real Note 8", 7, 16999, 128),
    Items("oppo a9", 4, 13999, 128),
    Items("real me 6 pro", 6, 17999, 64),
    Items("Oppo 5as", 2, 8999, 32),
    Items("Real me 5i", 4, 10999, 64),
    Items("Poco x2", 6, 18500, 128),
  ];
  // Temp List for sorting
  List<Items> sortingList = [];
  //Criteria List
  List<bool> criteria = [false, false];
  //prefrrence List
  List<String> preferrence = ['ram', 'storage'];

  @override
  void initState() {
    // TODO: implement initState
    super.initState();
    setState(() {
      sortingList = items;
    });
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text("Sort List Example"),
      ),
      body: Column(
        children: [
          _buttons(),
          ListView.builder(
              shrinkWrap: true,
              itemCount: sortingList.length,
              itemBuilder: (BuildContext context, int i) {
                return Card(
                  child: Row(
                    mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.spaceBetween,
                    children: [
                      Text(sortingList[i].name),
                      Text(sortingList[i].price.toString()),
                      Text(sortingList[i].ram.toString()),
                      Text(sortingList[i].storage.toString()),
                    ],
                  ),
                );
              }),
        ],
      ),
    );
  }

  Widget _buttons() {
    return RaisedButton(
      onPressed: () {
        setState(() {
          ///Sorting using MultiSort
          sortingList.multisort(criteria, preferrence);
        });
      },
      child: Text('Sort by preferrence'),
    );
  }
}
