Sort a List - Online List Tools (2023)

World's simplest list tool

This is a super simple browser-based application that sorts items in a list and arranges them in increasing or decreasing order. You can sort the items alphabetically, numerically, or by their length. You can also remove duplicate and empty items, as well as trim individual items that have whitespace around them. You can use any separator character to separate the input list items or alternatively use a regular expression to separate them. Additionally, you can create a new delimiter for the sorted output list. Created by list geeks from team Browserling.

List sorter tool What is a list sorter?

This online tool changes the order of all list items so that they are sorted. When it rearranges the items, they can go either in ascending or descending order. Since lists can contain anything, including letters and numbers, and items can have different lengths, you can switch between three sorting methods: alphabetical, numerical, and sorting by length. The alphabetical method rearranges all the items according to the positions of characters in the ASCII/Unicode table. The numerical method, sorts numbers based on their magnitude. If there are also letters or characters when the numerical method is used, then they are sorted in alphanumerical order. The sorting by length method counts the number of characters in each item and puts them either from the shortest to longest item, or from the longest to shortest item. You can switch between these sorting methods in the options as well as select the sort order of items there. Sometimes items in the list may contain whitespaces around them, so we also added an option to get rid of them and trim them. Additionally, you may remove duplicate and empty list items from the sorted list. When working with lists, they may have various formats (for example, comma-separated, bar-separated, tab-separated, or a single vertical column), so we made this program as generic as possible and it supports all possible list formats. When you load your list, you just have to tell this program how to split it into items. To do that, you just have to specify a list item delimiter character in the "Use a Symbol Separator" option or enter a regular expression that matches multiple delimiter variations in the "Use a Regex Separator" mode. Last but not least, you can specify a custom item delimiter for the output list. If you need to sort a list in random order, then you can use our Randomize a List tool. Listabulous!

List sorter examples Click to use

Numeric List Sorting

In this example, we sort a list of perfect numbers in descending order. As all the input items are numbers, we choose the numerical sorting mode. This way, the program compares the numbers by their magnitude and puts them in order from the largest number to the smallest. Perfect numbers are listed in a column, so we separate them with a newline character, and we also use the same newline in the sorted list.

Sort Words Alphabetically

In this example, we sort all words in a tongue twister alphabetically. To define words as individual elements of the list, we match them by the regular expression "/ +/", which separates them by the whitespace characters. We select the ascending sorting order (from "a" to "z") and remove all duplicate words. As a result, we get a list of all unique words in alphabetical order that are then separated by em dashes.

Sort a Car Price List

In this example, we rearrange the names of cars with their cost in alphabetic order. The list of cars has two columns that are separated by commas and semicolons. To find the items of the input list, we use the regular expression "/,|;/". This regular expression matches either a comma or a semicolon. We trim list items, remove empty elements, sort the car brands in ascending order, and return a much simpler and easier to read version price list.

Sort Rows of Pascal's Triangle

In this example, we load a data list that contains rows of binomial coefficients. Unfortunately, our cat walked across the keyboard and broke the order of the rows. To fix the problem, we treat the rows as list items, and to put the rows of Pascal's triangle back in the correct order, we sort the list by the length of items. We select the ascending sort order and get the correct triangle with one number at the vertex and 10 numbers at the base.
