LINQ like extension methods and Comparer<string> that can be used to sort strings by number in them.

as what windows explorer do {"text1", "text2", "text10"} instead of {"text1", "text10", "text2"}).

Features

  • Pure C#
  • Fast (because of internal usage of Span).
  • .NET Standard 1.0
  • Cross-Platform
  • Optional use of StringComparison enum as base.

Usage

var stringList = new List<string>
{
    "number1", "number2", "number3", "number4", "number10", "number15", "number22", "number26"
    , "number9", "number33", "number5", "number12"
};

stringList.Sort(new NaturalComparer(StringComparison.Ordinal));
//or
stringList.NaturalSort();

Console.WriteLine("Natural Sort:");
foreach(var item in stringList)
{
  Console.WriteLine(item);
}

stringList.Sort();
Console.WriteLine();
Console.WriteLine("Normal Sort:");
foreach(var item in stringList)
{
  Console.WriteLine(item);
}

/* output
Natural Sort:
number1
number2
number3
number4
number5
number9
number10
number12
number15
number22
number26
number33

Normal Sort:
number1
number10
number12
number15
number2
number22
number26
number3
number33
number4
number5
number9
