Feature: Sorting of Snippets in Snippets Extension

We have created a JupyterLab code snippet extension and are currently working on getting more features developed for the extension. Link: GitHub - jupytercalpoly/jupyterlab-code-snippets: Save, reuse, and share code snippets using JupyterLab Code Snippets!

One of the features that we are in the process of creating is a sorting feature that will allow users to select options to display their snippets according to a selected sorting criteria. Here is a basic UI plan:

The question we had was, would these particular sorting options be useful (Last Modified, Date Created)? And are there any other sorting criteria that might be more useful or useful to add as well?


I think that “Last used” (or “Most recently used”, not sure which sounds better) would make a lot of sense.
