             Summary: Sorting on pyarrow data structures ?
                 Key: ARROW-9367
             Project: Apache Arrow
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Python
            Reporter: Athanassios Hatzis

Hi, I consider sorting a fundamental operation for any in-memory data 
structures, including those of PyArrow.

It would be nice if pa.array, pa.table, etc had sorting methods but I did not 
find any. One has to pass sorting indices calculated from some other library, 
such as numpy, to sort them. Sorting indices could have been calculated 
directly from PyArrow. Am I missing something here ? That increases 
significantly complexity for the developer.

Do you have any plans on implementing such a feature in the near future ?
