how do I sort li tag using ul tag in JQuery? [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

<ul><li> <a href="/questions/7211704/jquery-order-by-date-in-data-attribute" dir="ltr" rel="nofollow">jQuery order by date in data attribute</a> <span class="question-originals-answer-count"> 3 answers </span> </li> <li> <a href="/questions/304396/what-is-the-easiest-way-to-order-a-ul-ol-in-jquery" dir="ltr" rel="nofollow">What is the easiest way to order a <UL>/<OL> in jQuery?</a> <span class="question-originals-answer-count"> 3 answers </span> </li> </ul> <ul id ="sort"> <li id = '2014-02-07'>tralala<li> <li id = '2013-02-09'>tralala<li> <li id = '2014-01-04'>tralala<li> <li id = '2011-09-05'>tralala<li> </ul>

I want that the result to be :

<ul id ="sort"> <li id = '2014-02-07'>tralala<li> <li id = '2014-01-04'>tralala<li> <li id = '2013-02-09'>tralala<li> <li id = '2011-09-05'>tralala<li> </ul>

I want to sort desc the li using the id in JQuery or Javascript . Thx


You could do this :

var list = $('#sort'), items = list.children().get(); list.append(items.sort(function(a, b){ return new Date(b.id) - new Date(a.id); }));
