Meteor - Sorting


Advertisements


We can sort the data once we get it from the database. In the following example, we will create Users collection. We will use a sort argument ({sort: {name: 1}}) for sorting the collection data by name. The number 1 is used to set the ascending order. If we want to use the descending order, we would use -1 instead.

Users = new Mongo.Collection('users');

Users.insert({
   name: 'James',
   email: 'eee@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 2, 23)
});

Users.insert({
   name: 'John',
   email: 'iii@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 2, 19)
});

Users.insert({
   name: 'Jennifer',
   email: 'aaa@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 6, 24)
});

var sortByName = Users.find({}, {sort: {name: 1}}).fetch();

var sortByEmail = Users.find({}, {sort: {email: 1}}).fetch();

var sortByJoined = Users.find({}, {sort: {joined: 1}}).fetch();

console.log(sortByName);
console.log(sortByEmail);
console.log(sortByJoined);
Meteor Sorting Name

We can sort the data by email the same way.

Users = new Mongo.Collection('users');

Users.insert({
   name: 'James',
   email: 'eee@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 2, 23)
});

Users.insert({
   name: 'John',
   email: 'iii@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 2, 19)
});

Users.insert({
   name: 'Jennifer',
   email: 'aaa@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 6, 24)
});

var sortByEmail = Users.find({}, {sort: {email: 1}}).fetch();

console.log(sortByEmail);
Meteor Sorting Email

Finally, we can sort it by the joining date.

Users = new Mongo.Collection('users');

Users.insert({
   name: 'James',
   email: 'eee@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 2, 23)
});

Users.insert({
   name: 'John',
   email: 'iii@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 2, 19)
});

Users.insert({
   name: 'Jennifer',
   email: 'aaa@example.com',
   joined: new Date(2016, 6, 24)
});

var sortByJoined = Users.find({}, {sort: {joined: 1}}).fetch();

console.log(sortByJoined);
