"As mentioned by Raymond Camden on Twitter, JQuery Mobile has the ability to automatically divide a list of items by a given property. By default, it is done alphabetically by letter similar to the Songs view in the Music app on iOS. It also has the ability to accept a custom function to change the default behaviour of how the list is divided.
The Ionic Framework currently does not have this functionality of automatically dividing a list (As of Beta 14).
I decided to look at tackling this as an external module (ion) and then see if the Ionic guys are interested in merging it into the core framework. It’s on GitHub!"
