The dictsort template filter is commonly used in Django with the following syntax (from django.views.debug):

{% for k, v in settings.items|dictsort:0 %}
  {{ k }} = {{ v|stringformat:"r" }}
{% endfor %}

In the documentation it is not clear what the 0 argument means.

Would be great to add that explanation: when using an integer value as an argument the dictionary will be sorted according to the character in the position given by the argument. Basically that 0 means that it will be sorted alphabetically as 0 is the first character of the keys string.
