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.
Thank you for your answer.
Pardon my ignorance, but by PR, you mean a push request ? Where can I do that ?
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
If somebody with the knowledge and the skill could do this, I would greatly appreciate.
Hello @kolaente !
Hope you’re doing well.
I’ve been using Vikunja more and more and I love it. Again, thanks for your awesome job
I’ve really been missing alphabetical sorting though. As I really know nothing about coding, I took a chance on reddit and asked for help. A kind soul answered me and is also interested in the feature.
You can follow our conversation here
We just started to work on this feature, but here we are :
- Only applicable to list view
- The button could be placed under “Show done tasks”
- It will act like the “Show done tasks” feature (browser session)
- Possibility to move items disabled while sorted alphabetically
- When adding an item while sorted alphabetically, it automatically reorders
What is your opinion on this ?
Here you can see new items being automatically sorted while alphabetical sorting is enabled
Looks awesome! Just replied in the thread on reddit.
