i don't understand what you're trying to output
objects aren't sorted
i mean object keys are not reorderable. they're insert ordered

I am getting this output:
{ hello: 2, hi: 3 }
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
what's wrong with that?
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
But I want my output to be hi:3, hello:2
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
i mean what do you want the output to be?
that's not how objects work, it's like a hash or a map
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
so should I change the whole code
?
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
you can collect them to an array like [["hi", 3], ["hello", 2]]

Can you please tell me if I am having a list of strings So I want to print the disticnt strings out of that list with their respective counts
so how can I do it?
for keys I think I have to mention the count itself but I just have a list of strings in my output
input*

@jbr
Is this an assignment of some sort?
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
yup
I am stuck at this point
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
it might help to look at the output javascript and see what you'd want to do with that

It is Like Input: {'hello 'hi 'hi 'hello 'hi} and then I want output as: {hi:3, hello:2}
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
have you looked at the output javascript
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
no
not yet
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
that is the next step
it will help you understand what sibilant is actually doing
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org

```
It would be like this in javascript
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
that doesn't return the results in any order
they're displayed in the order that they occur, not alphabetically
motivate

It is just for count as keys and values and I want the order based on count i.e. descending- 3,2,1
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
then you want an array output, not an object
the javascript above returns unordered results
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
Yes I want an array output just the sorted counts
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
take a look at Object.keys or sibilant's keys macro. you can map the keys to [[k, v], ...] and then sort that
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
This is more general code in java script
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
that's java not javascript
sibilant compiles to javascript
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
Sorry I pasted the wrong code
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
You should be able to translate that to sibilant. Let me know if you run into specific stumbling blocks
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
okay sure

Hi I tried this
but it is saying sort is not a function
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
Sort is for arrays. You have an object. You need to use Object.keys and Array.prototype.map to turn the object into an array
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
Can you help me with this how to convert it to array?
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
Oh you can use Object.entries now, I forgot about that
So use sort on the entries of that object

Hi team! I was given a task on sibilant, and I have such difficulty learning it. Would any of you be able to help me?
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
@iamha1 there’s a good chance it’s the same task other folks have been looking for help with, so scrolling up will likely yield answers. If you still have specific questions, ask away
