- I have incoming results from an API and I want to sort them (e.g. price) how can i do this without saving the results to the DB?
- this is a rails app.

Hey Chantal,

You would just use regular Ruby sort_by or sort_by! to sort the array that you get back from the API. https://apidock.com/ruby/Enumerable/sort_by

Well I want to render them first as they come and then with a dropdown button i want to sort them.  I guess I'm a little confused on the how

OMG! It worked.. I did directly on the controller which i'm not super happy about but it's a good start.
thank you so much
