    Extending Tablesort

    If you require a sort operation that does not exist in the sorts directory, you can add your own.

    Tablesort.extend('name', function(item) {
      // Regular expression to test against.
      // `item` is a table value to evaluate.
      return /foo/.test(item);
    }, function(a, b) {
      // Custom sort functionality goes here.
      // e.g var n = (a > b) ? -1 : 1;
      return n;

    If you've made an extend function that others would benefit from pull requests are gladly accepted!
