Tutorial: Ordering belongsToMany by Pivot

Jason Gilmore has a new tutorial showing a way of ordering belongsToMany relationships by the pivot table.

When declaring a belongsToMany relation in Laravel, you can optionally include the withTimestamps method to indicate the pivot table’s created_at and updated_at columns should be updated whenever a new pivot table record is inserted or updated. But how can you order your query results using one of these columns? In this tutorial, I’ll show you how.
