I'm currently tasked with implementing client side sorting on specific page view for our application.
After working on the pull request, one of the developers pointed out that this feature seems unnecessary because the endpoint that brings in the results is paginated, and for this reason, it makes no sense to have client side sorting. The justification was that "It gives obviously false sorting because you don't sort the full dataset".
I thought about this and I'm inclined to disagree with that statement; as a user, it makes sense to have the ability to sort paginated results to find what you're looking for without having the entire set of results. Is my assessment correct?
