Overview

This module may be used to generate a sorted "plain list", which is a sorted unordered HTML list without visible bullets.

  • There are six possible sort modes
    1. asc is ascending as defined by the default LUA string comparison operator.
    2. desc is descending as defined by the default LUA string comparison operator.
    3. asc with Template:Para is ascending using numeric comparison instead of string comparison.
    4. desc with Template:Para is descending using numeric comparison instead of string comparison.
    5. ascd is ascending dictionary order, so spaces are sorted before other characters.
    6. descd is descending dictionary order, so spaces are sorted before other characters.
  • By default, the list is assumed to be delimited by commas, this can be changed to semicolons or any other choice.
  • The list may be implicitly loaded from a wikidata property using the Template:Para parameter, which will override any explicitly specified values.

Usage

To convert a comma separated list to a sorted plainlist, use

  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|asc|<comma separated entries>}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|desc|<comma separated entries>}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|ascd|<comma separated entries>}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|descd|<comma separated entries>}}

To convert a semicolon separated list to a sorted plainlist, use

  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|asc|<semicolon separated entries>|;}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|desc|<semicolon separated entries>|;}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|ascd|<semicolon separated entries>|;}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|descd|<semicolon separated entries>|;}}

To convert a semicolon separated list of numbers to a sorted plainlist, use

  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|asc|<semicolon separated entries>|;|type=number}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|desc|<semicolon separated entries>|;|type=number}}

To convert a wikidata property list to a sorted plainlist, use

  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|asc|propertyID=<PNUMBER>}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|desc|propertyID=<PNUMBER>}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|ascd|propertyID=<PNUMBER>}}
  • {{#invoke:sorted plain list|descd|propertyID=<PNUMBER>}}
