I have some data which is stored in an array of arrays, and I’m having trouble figuring out how to sort it in Hugo. As a simplified example, consider something like (in YAML):
data: - name: A items: - x: AA n: 1 - x: AB n: 5 - x: AC n: 8 - name: B items: - x: BA n: 3 - x: BB n: 2 - x: BC n: 7 - name: C items: - x: CA n: 4 - x: CB n: 6 - x: CC n: 9
I’d like to sort by
n, so that C is output first (since the highest
n in C is CC, which is 9) then A (since AC is 8), then B (since BC is 7). Is there a way to do this in Hugo?
Simply sorting the input file isn’t a very good option, since it would result in a lot of churn in the files, and make them more difficult to maintain… The fallback is probably adding some sort of preprocessor, which I’m trying quite hard to avoid.
