Nested GROQ Query - How to Sort Categories in Alphabetical Order

2 replies
Last updated: Nov 10, 2021
Hey! I'm doing a nested query for categories under a blog post and was wondering how i could use groq to sort the returning categories by alphabetical order, or if i need to make some fancy projection... or I'm better off handling it client side.the current query, which returns the posts in the appropriate order:

*[_type == "post"] | order(publishedAt desc, _updatedAt desc) {
    categories[] -> {
    "slug": slug.current,
I tried to do a projection inside the query but I'm still very new to groq and trying to get the hang of it

Hi, sure! Maybe something like:
*[_type == "post"] | order(publishedAt desc, _updatedAt desc) {
  "categories": categories[] -> {
    "slug": slug.current,
  } | order(lower(title))
