Angular ships with some handy filters you can use for basic sorting and filtering.
<p ng-repeat="person in test.people | orderBy:'name'">
This filter sorts the collection by the name field. -name will reverse the order.
<p ng-repeat="person in test.people | limitTo:5">
This filter returns only the first 5 results. -5 will return only the last 5 results.
The pipe operator allows filters to be stacked and evaluated sequentially on the results of the previous collection filter.
<p ng-repeat="person in test.people | filter:search | orderBy:'name' | limitTo: 5">
This filter will filter the entire collection against the search model, order the matched results by the name attribute, and limit the result set to 5 entries.
Model data can be treated as a filterable collection as well.
