Ordering model query according to it's has_many relation
  • Hi,

    Is it possible when you do a query on a model, to sort the result by the number of it's has_many's related items ? For example, order blog posts by number of comments...

    No. That would require a select with a subquery, and that is not supported.

    As a workaround you could:
    - run your query including the related has-many
    - loop over the result, and store the count of the related records in a custom variable
    - sort the array on that variable using Arr::sort()
    - send the sorted array to the view
  • Yes, I was thinking about it but the table store a lot of data so it's definilty not the good way. I'll build my requests.
