We know pagination is a primary requirement of each and every project, so if you are a beginner with Laravel, then you must know how to use pagination in Laravel 11 and what other functions you can use with Laravel 11 pagination.

Step for Laravel 11 Bootstrap 5 Pagination Example

  • Step 1: Install Laravel 11
  • Step 2: MySQL Database Configuration
  • Step 3: Create Dummy Users
  • Step 4: Add Route
  • Step 5: Create Controller
  • Step 6: Create Blade File
  • Run Laravel App

So, let's follow below tutorials:

Step 1: Install Laravel 11

This step is not required; however, if you have not created the Laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: MySQL Database Configuration

In Laravel 11, there is a default database connection using SQLite, but if we want to use MySQL instead, we need to add a MySQL connection with the database name, username, and password to the `.env` file.


DB_DATABASE=here your database name(blog)
DB_USERNAME=here database username(root)
DB_PASSWORD=here database password(root)

Step 3: Create Dummy Users

In this step, we need to run the migration command to create the users table and then create dummy user records so we can see pagination.

Let's run the migration command:

php artisan migrate

Next, run the ticker command to add dummy users:

php artisan tinker


Step 4: Add Route

First thing is we put one route in one for list users with pagination. So simply add both routes in your route file.


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\UserController;
Route::get('users', [UserController::class, 'index']);

Step 5: Create Controller

Same as above for "route". Here, we will add one new method for "route". `index()` will return users with pagination data, so let's add below:


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;
use Illuminate\View\View;
class UserController extends Controller
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function index(Request $request): View
        $users = User::paginate(5);
        return view('users', compact('users'));

Step 6: Create Blade File

In this step, you need to create a users blade file and put below code with `links()` so it will generate pagination automatically. So let's put it.

                            <td colspan="3">There are no users.</td>
            <!-- You can use Tailwind CSS Pagination as like here: -->
