JavaScript Array.sort with examples

I was reading a social post and found that Array.sort() works great across all the browser. I thought to write small demo to show powerful compare function to sort object type array on given property.

Example: Array.sort()

Also, Array.sort() is a string sort by default! Should be used for string like type only!

So, you can not use for Array.sort() for numeric sort! 🙁

But, you can use compare callback function to work with Object type Array very efficiently.

Example: Array.sort(compareFunction)
