How to sort strings descending with TypeScript?

To sort strings descending with TypeScript, we can compare strings with comparison operators.

For instance, we write

const sorted: string[] = values.sort((one, two) => (one > two ? -1 : 1));

to call sort with a callback to compare strings one and two.

We return -l to reverse their order if one is bigger than two.

Otherwise, we return 1 to sort them in ascending order.

one and two are both entries in values being iterated through.
