sortable

0.01
Sortable provides a DSL for defining sort order on any Ruby object To use it, you just call the sortable method and pass it a list of methods and/or blocks; when you call sort on a collection of these objects, each method/block is evaluated in turn, and the first that provides a non-zero sort value is used.
