Published: Jan 01, 2023

Hello Artisans, today I'll show you how to paginate data using Tailwind CSS in your laravel application. Pagination is a must thing for every web application. And tailwind is nowadays one of the most popular CSS framework. So, let's get started and see how we can easily integrate pagination in our laravel application using Tailwind CSS.  

Note: Tested on Laravel 9.19

  1. Create and Setup Controller
  2. Create Route
  3. Setup View File
  4. Create dummy data with Tinker
  5. Output

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 UserController

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

app/Http/Controllers/UserController.php
<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Models\User;

class UserController extends Controller
{
    public function index()
    {
        $data = [
            'users' => User::latest()->paginate(10)
        ];
        return view('welcome',$data);
    }
}

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.

routes/web.php
<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

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

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.

resources/views/welcome.blade.php
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

Create Dummy Records

Now we'll create some dummy records using Tinker. If you are new with tinker please consider with one of my short tutorial regarding Tinker. Now fire the below command in the terminal.

php artisan tinker
App\Models\User::factory()->count(500)->create()

It'll create 500 users in your users table.

Output

And finally we're ready with our setup. It's time to check our output. Now go to http://127.0.0.1:8000, If everything goes well you'll find a below output
