Description Mark A. Hershberger 2011-09-01 02:58:20 UTC
Split off from bug 164, this is a tracking bug for areas that need improved client-side sorting.

Collation can already be adapted using: mw.config.set('tableSorterCollation',{'Ä':'A','Ö':'O','Ü':'U','ä':'a','ö':'o','ü':'u','ß':'ss'});

The question is, how do we do this automatically. Create a JS version of the Collation class ?
Comment 3 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2013-07-06 15:51:37 UTC
Easiest approach would probably to in the parser: read through the table, generate binary sortkeys, turn them into some non-binary form, put it in a data attribute.

The collation class (or rather the third party icu library used by it) is rather complex. I'm doubtful we could re-create it in javascript sanely. For example, it needs to do sorting on three different levels, be able to dynamically insert new "in-between" values, etc. We also don't even know what rules are being used at runtime (as the php bindings don't expose that, and it changes with version).

OTOH, I suppose it doesn't need to be exactly the same. Fixing just the really bad mismatches in sorting behaviour might be good enough.
