How to sort launchpad items in macOS

After I’ve upgraded my MacBook to the new Catalina release I’ve noticed that the order of my items in the launchpad was screwed up. I’ve known the way to manually rearrange the items but I was looking for an automated way to do it. I’ve searched a bit around and found the following solution described at tecklyfe.com:

defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool true; killall Dock

This will place all macOS standard apps on the first tab and all other apps in alphabetical order on the next tabs. Exactly what I was looking for.
