JavaScript - get object properties sorted by key

In this article, we would like to show you how to get object properties sorted by key in JavaScript.

The main concept of this solution is to use:

  • keys() method which returns an array of given object property names,
  • sort() method to sort the array,
  • reduce() method to create a new object from the array with sorted properties.

Runnable example:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

const object = {
  'b': 'bb',
  'c': 'cc',
  'a': 'aa'

const sortedObject = Object.keys(object)
  .reduce((result, key) => (result[key] = object[key], result),{});

console.log(JSON.stringify(object));       // {"b":"bb", "c":"cc", "a":"aa"}
console.log(JSON.stringify(sortedObject)); // {"a":"aa", "b":"bb", "c":"cc"}


The default sort order is ascending but elements converted into strings are compared by their sequences of UTF-16 code units values.
