You cannot sort a dictionary, but only get a representation of a dictionary that is sorted. Dictionary are inherently order-less, but other types such as lists and tuples, are not. So you need a sorted representation, which will be a list—probably a list of tuples.

import operator

x = {1: 2, 3: 4, 4: 3, 2: 1, 0: 0}

sorted_x = sorted(x.items(), key=operator.itemgetter(1))

import operator

x = {1: 2, 3: 4, 4: 3, 2: 1, 0: 0}

sorted_x = sorted(x.items(), key=operator.itemgetter(0))

**Sort a python Dictionary by value:**import operator

x = {1: 2, 3: 4, 4: 3, 2: 1, 0: 0}

sorted_x = sorted(x.items(), key=operator.itemgetter(1))

**Sort a python Dictionary by Key:**import operator

x = {1: 2, 3: 4, 4: 3, 2: 1, 0: 0}

sorted_x = sorted(x.items(), key=operator.itemgetter(0))
