It is pretty simple to make:

First, create an array of scores. Append the new scores if you need to:

``list_of_scores = [41, 98, 12, 44, 76, 89, 77]``

Then sort the list using `.sort()` and set `reverse` as a parameter to `True`:

``````list_of_scores = [41, 98, 12, 44, 76, 89, 77]
list_of_scores.sort(reverse=True)``````

Then import the replit database and set the list to a key:

``````from replit import db

list_of_scores = [41, 98, 12, 44, 76, 89, 77]
list_of_scores.sort(reverse=True)
db["leader_board"] = list_of_scores ``````

Then to format the leader board, use a simple for loop:

``````from replit import db

list_of_scores = [41, 98, 12, 44, 76, 89, 77]
list_of_scores.sort(reverse=True)
db["leader_board"] = list_of_scores

for i in range(len(list_of_scores)):
print(f"Position {i+1} : {list_of_scores[i]}")``````

Output:

``````Position 1 : 98
Position 2 : 89
Position 3 : 77
Position 4 : 76
Position 5 : 44
Position 6 : 41
Position 7 : 12``````

If you want to keep adding scores, then you can create a variable, set it to a db and keep appending to it and use the same code:

``````from replit import db

list_of_scores = list(db["leader_board"])
list_of_scores.sort(reverse=True)

for i in range(len(list_of_scores)):
print(f"Position {i+1} : {list_of_scores[i]}")``````

If you want to know more about the replit database, Click the database icon on the left panel on your repl.
Hope I helped !!!!!

OHHH. that is verrryyy easy. You just need to use a dictionary, change it to a list, append any userss you want. Da code:

``````from replit import db

data = {
"user1" : 1000,
"user2" : 1342,
"user3" : 1938,
"user4" : 1093,
"user5" : 890
}

user_list = list(data.keys())
money_list = list(data.values())

money_list.sort(reverse=True)

# db["leader_board"] = money_list

for i in money_list:
print(f"{user_list[money_list.index(i)]} : \${i}")``````

you could store an array of players, and then you sort it so you get a leaderboard!
