I have an array like one mentioned below

[6] => Array
        [name] => Extras
        [total_products] => 0
        [total_sales] => 0
        [total_affiliation] => 0

[5] => Array
        [name] => Office Products
        [total_products] => 7
        [total_sales] => 17
        [total_affiliation] => 8

[1] => Array
        [name] => Hardware Parts
        [total_products] => 6
        [total_sales] => 0
        [total_affiliation] => 0


Right now, order is: Extras, Office Products, Hardware Parts

I want to sort main array in such as way that it is order by total_sales of inner-array in desc order

so order will be: Office Products, Extras, Hardware Parts

Any help guys



PHP 5.3:

usort($array, function ($a, $b) { return $b['total_sales'] - $a['total_sales']; });

PHP 5.2-:

usort($array, create_function('$a,$b', 'return $b["total_sales"] - $a["total_sales"];'));

Here's what worked best for me when trying to script this (in case anyone else comes across this like I did):

$ pecl -d php_suffix=5.6 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

$ pecl -d php_suffix=7.0 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

$ pecl -d php_suffix=7.1 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

The -d php_suffix=<version> piece allows you to set config values at run time vs pre-setting them with pecl config-set. The uninstall -r bit does not actually uninstall it (from the docs):

vagrant@homestead:~$ pecl help uninstall
pecl uninstall [options] [channel/]<package> ...
Uninstalls one or more PEAR packages.  More than one package may be
specified at once.  Prefix with channel name to uninstall from a
channel not in your default channel (

  -r, --register-only
        do not remove files, only register the packages as not installed

The uninstall line is necessary otherwise installing it will remove any previously installed version, even if it was for a different PHP version (ex: Installing an extension for PHP 7.0 would remove the 5.6 version if the package was still registered as installed).

It seems you expect indexOrder.indexOf(s) to always be equal to s (since your List was initialized to [0, 1, 2, 3], where the index of s is s).

While this is true in your original indexOrder List, this may no longer true when Collections.sort starts swapping elements of your List.

In order not to rely on the ordering of indexOrder while you are sorting it, you can create a copy of that List:

List<Integer> copy = new ArrayList<>(indexOrder);
Collections.sort(indexOrder, Comparator.comparing((Integer s) -> indexes[copy.indexOf(s)]));

You can use the higher order functions in this for sure, but not 100% to fully produce the desired result but a big chunk of it, since your desired array type is :[Any].

Check out the code below:

var myGroup = Dictionary(grouping: arrayOne, by: { $ }) // group each element by id -type of: [Int:[Data]]
let resultArray = { $0.value } //map out the elements without the id key. -type of: [[Data]]

//Create hetro Array so we can use it later to append the results
var myHetroArray: [Any] = []
// loop each array in the result array and check if it only contains 1 element if so append that one element to the hetro array otherwise just append the whole thing.
for array in resultArray {
    if array.count ==  1 {
    } else {

print(myHetroArray) // produce the desired result.

Output: [
[Data(id: 19, locale: "de", title: "p1", date: "11/10/2019"),Data(id: 19, locale: "de", title: "p2", date: "11/10/2019"),Data(id: 19, locale: "de", title: "p3", date: "11/10/2019")],
Data(id: 15, locale: "de", title: "free", date: "10/11/2019"),
Data(id: 32, locale: "fr", title: "free", date: "10/11/2019"),
[Data(id: 3, locale: "en", title: "p1", date: "10/15/2019"), Data(id: 3, locale: "de", title: "p2", date: "11/12/2019")]

Never used any of those, but they look interesting..

Take a look at Gearman as well.. more overhead in systems like these but you get other cool stuff :) Guess it depends on your needs ..
