Python | Sort each String in String list

Sometimes, while working with Python, we can have a problem in which we need to perform the sort operation in all the Strings that are present in a list. This problem can occur in general programming and web development. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be solved.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + sorted() + join()
This is one way in which this problem can be solved. In this, we use sorted() functionality to perform sort operation and join() is used to reconstruct the string list.

# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Sort Strings in String list
# using list comprehension + sorted() + join()
  
# initialize list 
test_list = ['gfg', 'is', 'good']
  
# printing original list 
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# Sort Strings in String list
# using list comprehension + sorted() + join()
res = [''.join(sorted(ele)) for ele in test_list]
  
# printing result
print("List after string sorting : " + str(res))

Output :



The original list : ['gfg', 'is', 'good']
List after string sorting : ['fgg', 'is', 'dgoo']

 

Method #2 : Using map() + sorted() + join() + lambda
The combination of above method can also be used to perform this task. In this, we perform the functionality of traversal using map() and lambda rather than list comprehension.

res = list(map(lambda ele: "".join(sorted(ele)), test_list))
  
# printing result
print("List after string sorting : " + str(res))

Output :

The original list : ['gfg', 'is', 'good']
List after string sorting : ['fgg', 'is', 'dgoo']
