SortImports is a simplistic Scalafix rule.

It will organize imports into prefix-blocks and order imports inside those blocks alphabetically.

For example, these imports

import scala.util._
import scala.collection._
import java.util.Map
import org.xml._
import com.sun._

will be organized as follows

import java.util.Map

import scala.collection._
import scala.util._

import org.xml._

import com.sun._

if the blocks from the below Configuration example are used.

Important sort-imports does not (currently) take into account shadowing. It is a faily dumb sorter of imports. If your code is using shadowing, it may end up no longer compiling! If you run into this issue, consider using liancheng/scalafix-organize-imports, which implements a semantic rule.
