Alphabetically sorting a list

Hello !

I’ve really been enjoying Vikunja. One of the reasons I use it is to make a grocery list with my partner without having to be in the same room.

But she had a good point on this : why can’t we sort list items alphabetically ? Let’s say we’re looking for “apples” in the list to uncheck it, but we added it after “tomates”, so we’ll have a hard time finding it.

Is there any way to achieve this ?

Currently, that’s not possible. The api supports it though so it would only require a frontend change.

As a workaround, you could manually drag the items in alphabetical order.

PRs welcome :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you for your answer.

Pardon my ignorance, but by PR, you mean a push request ? Where can I do that ?

A PR is a pull request. You would need to send one in the code repo here: vikunja/frontend: Frontend Roadmap here: https://my.vikunja.cloud/share/UrdhKPqumxDXUbYpEGJLSIyNTwAnbBzVlwdDpRbv/auth - frontend - Gitea

I can see the “new pull request” button but can’t click it o_O

You’ll need to login (create an account if you don’t have one or use github login), fork the repo, do your changes and then you can open a PR.

Thank you for explaining how all of this works. Unfortunately, I am by any means not a coder :frowning:

If somebody with the knowledge and the skill could do this, I would greatly appreciate.
