('username', _('Login')),
('userfile__file__size', _('Size')),
('date_joined', _('Sing up date'))

2. If you need to provide your own template create inside your `templates`
`ordered_listview` directory with `fields.html` and `field.html` in.

fields.html - list of sortable fields
field.html - order field and state template

3. If you want to ignore null values during sort, add fields to null_ignore_fields.

class UserListView(OrderedListView):
null_ignore_fields = ['quantity']

class UserListView(OrderedListView):
null_ignore_fields = '*' # For all fields
