List rotator

World's simplest list tool

This is a super simple browser-based application that rotates all items in a list either forward or backward. Rotating items forward moves them to the right (or down if the list is vertical) and rotating items backward moves them to the left (or up if the list is vertical). You can specify the number of items to rotate in the options, as well as customize the separator of the items in input and output lists. Created by list geeks from team Browserling.

List rotator tool What is a list rotator?
This online tool rotates the items in a list. It does not change the items themselves and does not delete any of them, but it only cyclically shifts the items from one side of the list to the other side. For example, if the input list is a horizontal list of digits "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6" then we can rotate it to the right (forward) or left (backward). If we rotate this list to the right by two items, we'll get a new list "5, 6, 1, 2, 3, 4". Similarly, rotating this list to the left by one item will move the first digit to the last position "2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 1". If the input list is vertical (the items are separated by a newline character "\n"), then rotating it forward, moves the items down and rotating it backward, moves the items up. You can choose the direction of rotation in the second block of options, as well as indicate how many items at once to rotate. To make it work with all types of lists, you can use two modes for separating list items. The "Character Split Mode" is used when the input list has a single character delimiter such as a comma, dash, or space. The "Regexp Split Mode" is used when the input list has several different separators. For example, a comma mixed with a space or a semicolon mixed with a tab. For the output rotated list, you can set any new separator in the third block of options. Setting a new separator for the output list lets you create a consistent list with no mixed item separators. Listabulous!
List rotator examples Click to use
Rotate the Hungarian Alphabet to the Right
In this example, we rotate a list with 44 letters of the Hungarian alphabet to the right. Since the original list is a simple comma-separated list, we split the items by commas via the "Character Split Mode". We select the "Rotate Forward" direction (this direction shifts items to the right) and rotate exactly a half of the alphabet. The last 22 letters on the right are now shifted to the beginning and appear on the left side.

Delimiter symbol or regular expression.
Rotate list items to the right. (Down if a vertical column list.)
Number of items to rotate.
Enter the character that goes between items in the rotated list.
Rotate a Tree List to the Left
In this example, we rotate a list of tree names to the left. Since the items of the input list are delimited by tabs and newlines, we use the regex splitting mode with a regular expression "/\s+/". We move four items backward (the first four items get moved to the end of the list) and print the rotated list separated by the vertical pipe symbol.

Rotate a List of Alt Codes Up
In this example, we load a vertical list of alt codes and perform the cyclic shift operation on it. We move the items by 6 positions up (backward) and now they appear at the bottom. We use a newline character on input and output data to separate the list items.
