Pagination is a method for dividing content into several pages and creating appropriate layouts for better and more organized presentation. Pagination, particularly Vue powered pagination is an essential requirements for blogs, websites  who wish their front-pages to be sufficiently little to stack but then sufficiently showcase the most important posts. In this case Laravel with Vue pagination is perfect choice for developers.

vue pagination

Vue.js has been a popular option for adding functionality to Laravel projects. The good part is that it is very easy to integrate Vue.js into Laravel code. The process is very similar to using jQuery in the code. Just include it in the body tag and you are good to go.

In this article, I will demonstrate how to create simple Vue pagination in Laravel 5.5.

Prerequisites

For the purpose of this tutorial, I assume that you have a Laravel application installed on a web server. My setup is:

  • Laravel 5.5
  • PHP 7.1
  • MySQL
  • Node.js with NPM

Server level issues could mar your learning experience. In my case, I avoid these issues by managed Laravel web hosting on Cloudways. Cloudways offers a great development stack and takes care of all server level problems. You can try out Cloudways for free by signing for an account.

Steps to Create Vue Pagination in Laravel

Install Node.js with NPM

The first step is the installation of Node.js with NPM.

For this, first install Node.js. Next navigate to the project’s folder. Launch the terminal and then type the following command:

This command will install all the dependencies for VueJS. In addition, the command will also install laravel-mix, an API for defining webpack.

Database Configuration

The next step is the setup of MySQL database. I will also show you how to configure it for Laravel.

In the project root, you will find the .env .Add the database credentials (username, DB name, and password) to setup the database and allow the Laravel Single page app to access it.

Create the Migrations

In the third step, open the terminal and go to the root of the newly created Laravel project and generate a new migration to create task table:

Next , open the migration file located in the database/migration folder and replace the up() function with the following code:

Run the Migration

Next, I will create the required tables in the database through the following command:

Create model-factory

Next, I will create a model-factory by typing the following commands in the SSH terminal:

Next, simply edit the Post factory:

Next, edit User Factory:

Database Seeder

Database Seeder is a very helpful tool that Laravel provides for database management. The tool adds sample data to the databases automatically in a process known as database seeding. Create a file named Databaseseeder.php and add the following code to the file:

Create Model

Create Post.php and paste the following code in it:

Create the Controller

It is time to create the controller. For this, create PostController inside the Controllers folder and add an index method to return the paginated records:

Create the View

I will now modify welcome.blade.php for creating the view of Vue pagination in Laravel. Open the file and paste the following code in the file:.

Build the Route

For displaying the data, I will modify the routes/web.php file like this:
