Sort array based on values in another array

I have 2 arrays as follows.

Array 1

let array1 = [

  {
    name:1,
    options: {layer:mynode:Cat}
  },
  {
    name:randomName,
    options: {layer:mynode:Dog}
  },
  {
    name:randomName2,
    options: {layer:mynode:Lion}
  }

]

And the next array

Array 2

let array2 = ["Dog","Lion","Cat"]

I want to sort the array1 according to the data order in array2. I have tried something like this but it’s giving me a undefined result

sortedArr = array2.map((object,key) => array1[((options.layers).split(':'))[1]]);

Can someone help me with this?

Answer

let array1 = [
  {
    name: 1,
    options: { layer: "mynode:Cat" },
  },
  {
    name: 2,
    options: { layer: "mynode:Dog" },
  },
  {
    name: 3,
    options: { layer: "mynode:Lion" },
  },
];
let array2 = ["Dog", "Lion", "Cat"];

array1.sort((a, b) => {
  return array2.indexOf(a.options.layer.split(":")[1]) >
    array2.indexOf(b.options.layer.split(":")[1])
    ? 1 : -1;
});

console.log(array1);
