Sorting and grouping in Mavo gives developers further control as to how the data shown on their webpage will be displayed. Given a collection of elements with the same underlying data schema, users can choose a property of these elements whose value should be used as a sorting criterion for what order the elements appear in. Expanding on this, Mavo users can also view a collection of data in groups, where group headings appear above a subset of the items denoting a shared characteristic of the items. With this additional functionality, Mavo developers can now author more powerful web applications that react dynamically to user input to display their data in a more meaningful way. All this new functionality comes with the existing ease-of-use of Mavo, requiring only an HTML attribute to specify how the data should be displayed, and how the view should update should changes in the data occur.
