Ordering Derivation

Standard Scala library provides a type class called Ordering[A] that allows us to compare values of type A. ZIO Schema provides a method called ordering that generates an Ordering[A] instance for the underlying type described by the schema:

sealed trait Schema[A] {
def ordering: Ordering[A]

Here is an example, where it helps us to sort the list of Person:

import zio.schema._

case class Person(name: String, age: Int)

object Person {
implicit val schema: Schema[Person] = DeriveSchema.gen[Person]

val sortedList: Seq[Person] =
Person("John", 42),
Person("Jane", 34)
