For some reason, I couldn't find the API documentation for ".sort()", but apparently jQuery does implement it. It takes a compartor function as an argument just like the version for arrays does:

$("ul").html($("li").sort((a, b) => (a.textContent > b.textContent ? 1 : -1)));

Of course, you'll need more specific selectors if you have more than one list on the page.

any idea how to make load more elemets button for each ul?
