Sort Dictionary key and values List in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to sort the key and values in a dictionary, the ‘sorted’ method can be used.

Below is the demonstration of the same −

Example

 Live Demo

my_dict = {'Hi': [1, 6, 3],
   'there': [2, 9, 6],
   'Mark': [16, 7]}

print("The dictionary is : ")
print(my_dict)

my_result = dict()
for key in sorted(my_dict):
   my_result[key] = sorted(my_dict[key])

print("The sorted dictionary is : " )
print(my_result)

Output

The dictionary is :
{'Hi': [1, 6, 3], 'there': [2, 9, 6], 'Mark': [16, 7]}
The sorted dictionary is :
{'Hi': [1, 3, 6], 'Mark': [7, 16], 'there': [2, 6, 9]}

Explanation

  • A dictionary is defined, and is displayed on the console.

  • An empty dictionary is defined.

  • The dictionary is iterated over, before which it is sorted.

  • The key is again sorted and assigned to the empty dictionary.

  • The sorted dictionary is displayed on the console.
