  6. Run Laravel Application

Install Laravel 6 framework

If want to developed application in Laravel, so first we want to download Laravel 6 framework and install in our local computer.

For this we have to go command prompt, and then after go to directoy in which we want to download and install this framwork and run following command.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel6

Once Laravel framework has been install in define directory, first we want to make database connection. For this we have open .env file and in this file we have to define Mysql database configuration, which you can find below and it will make database connection.


After making database connection, now we have to make one table with some data in Mysql database. For this you have to run following sql script. It will make table with some sample data in Mysql database.

-- Database: `testing`

-- --------------------------------------------------------

-- Table structure for table `sample_datas`

CREATE TABLE `sample_datas` (
  `id` bigint(20) UNSIGNED NOT NULL,
  `first_name` varchar(255) COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci NOT NULL,
  `last_name` varchar(255) COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci NOT NULL,
  `created_at` timestamp NULL DEFAULT NULL,
  `updated_at` timestamp NULL DEFAULT NULL
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_unicode_ci;

-- Dumping data for table `sample_datas`

INSERT INTO `sample_datas` (`id`, `first_name`, `last_name`, `created_at`, `updated_at`) VALUES
(1, 'John', 'Smith', '2019-10-11 21:39:09', '2019-10-11 21:39:09'),
(2, 'Peter', 'Parker', '2019-10-11 21:39:09', '2019-10-11 21:39:09'),

-- Indexes for dumped tables

-- Indexes for table `sample_datas`
ALTER TABLE `sample_datas`

-- AUTO_INCREMENT for dumped tables

-- AUTO_INCREMENT for table `sample_datas`
ALTER TABLE `sample_datas`

Create Controller

In Laravel framework, for handle http request we have to make controller class. For this we have to command prompt and run following command.

php artisan make:controller PaginationController

This command will make PaginationController.php file in app/Http/Controllers folder. In this class first we have to add use DB; statement, by using this statement we can use Laravel query builder class for database related operation. In this class we have make following method.
  • index() - This is the root method of this class. This method will fetch five data from Mysql table. And then after it will load that data in pagination_parent.blade.php view file.
  • fetch(Request $request) - This method will received Ajax request for fetch next five data from Mysql table. Here we have use simplePaginate() method for make pagination with Next and Previous button link. And lastly it will load data in pagination_child.blade.php file.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use DB;

class PaginationController extends Controller
    function index()
     $data = DB::table('sample_datas')->simplePaginate(5);
        return view('pagination_parent', compact('data'));

    function fetch(Request $request)
      $data = DB::table('sample_datas')->simplePaginate(5);
         return view('pagination_child', compact('data'))->render();

Create View Blade File

For display output in the form of HTML, In Laravel we have to create view blade file. In Laravel view file has been use blade templating engine for convert output in HTML format and view file has been store under resources/views folder.Here we have make following view file.


  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <title>Laravel 6 Pagination with Next Previous Button Link using Ajax</title>
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.6/css/bootstrap.min.css" />
  <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.6/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
  <div class="container">    
     <br />
     <h3 align="center">Laravel 6 Pagination with Previous Next Button Link using Ajax</h3>
     <br />
     <div class="table-responsive" id="table_data">


 $(document).on('click', '.page-link', function(event){
    var page = $(this).attr('href').split('page=')[1];

 function fetch_data(page)
  var _token = $("input[name=_token]").val();
      url:"{{ route('pagination.fetch') }}",
      data:{_token:_token, page:page},



<div class="table-responsive">
    <table class="table table-striped table-bordered">
            <th>First Name</th>
            <th>Last Name</th>
        @foreach($data as $row)
            <td>{{ $row->first_name }}</td>
            <td>{{ $row->last_name }}</td>

    {!! $data->links() !!}

Set Route

In Laravel we have to set the route of controller method for display result on web page. For this we have to open routes/web.php file and in this file we have to define route.



Route::get('/pagination', 'PaginationController@index');

Route::post('pagination/fetch', 'PaginationController@fetch')->name('pagination.fetch');


Run Laravel Application

Once all code is ready, now we want to run Laravel application. For this first we have to go command prompt and run following command.

php artisan serve

This command will run Laravel server and provide use base url of laravel application. For test above code you have to run following url in your browser.

So, this is step by step process for creating Pagination with Next and Previous button link in Laravel 6 using Ajax. So, We hope this tutorial will help you to learn this topic.
