Another common data analysis technique is sorting, which rearranges the order of data—often alphabetically for text data, or from least to greatest for numerical data. This video covers the basics of sorting a nested list in Dynamo.
- Now let's take a look at the process…of sorting data, which will rearrange the order…of information in a list.…When you start using Dynamo as part of…your project workflow,…there'll be times that you'll be interested in…sorting text data in alphabetical order…and numerical data from least to greatest,…or greatest to least.…Now there are a couple different nodes in the library…that can be used to sort data,…the one we'll cover in this video is…called Sort By Function,…which tends to lend you the most control…over your sort operation.…We can find that node in the…List Organize section in the node library.…
Again, let's use the Rest Of Items output…as a way of testing out our sorting feature.…You'll notice that the Sort By Function node…takes two inputs.…One of them is the list of data…that we're interested in sorting,…which will come from our Rest Of Items node.…Let's go ahead and plug that in now.…Next, we'll need to construct a function…that Dynamo is going to use in order to…sort this data.…For this example let's sort each sub-list of data,…
