Simple Problem

Let’s say you have have only six resources, which are simple files. I’ll use these images:

A.png

B.png

C.png

The files are simply named, there are only three shapes, and there only three colors. But imagine these are stand-ins for real resources that really could benefit from multiple sorting.

I want to sometimes see the resources by foreground color, sometimes by background color, and sometimes by shape. Here they are sorted by hand:

  • foreground_color
    • blue
    • green
    • orange
  • background_color
    • blue
    • green
    • orange
  • shape
    • circle
    • square
    • triangle

Using existing tools, how could you switch back and forth between these three different views of the same six files?
