I am currently getting JSON data from the discogs API (mp3 tag data) and wish to sort the results by the key's value. In this case I am trying to get data for a Guns n Roses song and the output has 1988 as the first one while the data actually has a record from 1987. How can I sort this data so that I can get to the sorted data by year (olderst to newest). The code below sorts by either key or value but thats not what I intended to get. Please help.
import json import urllib2 request = urllib2.Request('http://api.discogs.com/database/search?sort=year&sort_order=asc&artist=%22Guns+N%27+Roses%22&track=%22Sweet+Child+O%27+Mine%22&format_exact=Album&type=master') request.add_header('User-Agent','Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT)') request.add_header('Content-Type','application/json') response = urllib2.urlopen(request) json_raw= response.readlines() json_object = json.loads(json_raw) for row in json_object['results']: try: from operator import itemgetter for k, v in sorted(row.items(), key=itemgetter(0)): print k, v except KeyError: pass
