Laravel Create Paginated Data from Array

Hello Artisans, today I'll show you how to paginate data from array in your laravel application. Sometimes it's quite necessary to show the paginated data through arrays of data. So, let's get started and see how we can easily integrate pagination in our laravel application using arrays of data.  

Note: Tested on Laravel 9.19

Create and Setup Controller

First of all, create a controller so that we can write our logics or query to show the result. So, fire the below commands in the terminal.

php artisan make:controller PaginateController

It'll create a controller under app\Http\Controllers called PaginationController.php. Open the file and replace with below codes.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Pagination\LengthAwarePaginator;
use Illuminate\Pagination\Paginator;
use Illuminate\Support\Collection;

class PaginateController extends Controller
    public function index(): \Illuminate\Contracts\View\Factory|\Illuminate\Contracts\View\View|\Illuminate\Contracts\Foundation\Application
        $myArray = [
            ['id'   =>  1,    'title' =>  'Laravel'],
            ['id'   =>  2,    'title' =>  'Symfony'],
            ['id'   =>  3,    'title' =>  'CodeIgniter'],
            ['id'   =>  4,    'title' =>  'CakePHP'],
            ['id'   =>  5,    'title' =>  'Yii'],
            ['id'   =>  6,    'title' =>  'Zend'],
            ['id'   =>  7,    'title' =>  'Slim'],
            ['id'   =>  8,    'title' =>  'Phalcon'],
            ['id'   =>  9,    'title' =>  'FuelPHP'],
            ['id'   =>  10,   'title' =>  'Kohana'],
            ['id'   =>  11,   'title' =>  'Fat-Free Framework']

        $stacks = $this->paginate($myArray);

        return view('welcome', compact('stacks'));

    public function paginate($items, $perPage = 5, $page = null, $options = [])
        $page = $page ?: (Paginator::resolveCurrentPage() ?: 1);
        $items = $items instanceof Collection ? $items : Collection::make($items);
        return new LengthAwarePaginator($items->forPage($page, $perPage), $items->count(), $perPage, $page, $options);

Create Route

Now we'll create routes so that we can access in our view file. So, put the below route in web.php file. 


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

Route::get('/', [\App\Http\Controllers\PaginateController::class,'index'])->name('paginate');

Setup View File

Now we'll modify the default blade file which comes with the laravel named welcome.blade.php. Just replace with below codes.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

    <title>Pagination with Array -</title>

    <!-- Fonts -->
    <link href=";600;700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css">

        body {
            font-family: 'Nunito', sans-serif;
<body class="antialiased">
<div class="container mt-5">
    <h4 class="text-center mb-3">Popular PHP Frameworks</h4>
    <table class="table table-bordered">
        @foreach($stacks as $stack)
                <td>{{ $stack['id'] }}</td>
                <td>{{ $stack['title'] }}</td>
    <div class="text-center">
        {{ $stacks->links('vendor.pagination.bootstrap-4') }}



And finally we're ready with our setup. It's time to check our output. Now go to, If everything goes well you'll find a below output
