:bulb: The prerequisite of this example is already installed library, see installation in the front page.

The library can be used in MVC architecture system as well in single PHP script. Also can be change to any template system.


$totalItems = $blogPosts->count(); // Get total amount of items
$currentPage = (int)max($request->query('page'), 1); // Get current page, use $_GET['page'] directly or whatever
$totalPages = (int)ceil($totalItems / $itemsPerPage); // Count total amount of pages

$search = $request->query('search'); // If should support search, get searched query
if ($search) {
    $search = urlencode($search); // URLencode value to be safe when putting into URL

// Code above update according to your framework
$paginator = (
        new \ResponsivePagination\Paginator(
            4, // The initial range
            $search ? "?search={$search}&page=%%page%%" : "?page=%%page%%", // %%page%% is placeholder
            $search ? "?search={$search}" : '/'
    )->addBreakpoint(3, 'd-none d-lg-block', 'd-lg-none')
    ->addBreakpoint(2, 'd-none d-md-block', 'd-md-none')
    ->addBreakpoint(1, 'd-none d-sm-block', 'd-sm-none')
