Laravel 8/7 Paginate with Collection or Array

By Hardik Savani November 5, 2023 Category : Laravel

In this tutorial, i would like to guide how to create pagination from array or collection object in laravel 8/7 application. we will create laravel 7/6 paginate from array example. This example will help to create paginate collection object in laravel 8/7.

We will create our custom collection object with array and create pagination using laravel eloquent. we will use Paginator and LengthAwarePaginator facade to creating pagination from custom array in laravel 6.

In this example, we will simple create one route and call controller method. that controller method we will create our custom array and convert into collection object. we also create one paginate() in same controller to create pagination in laravel 6. then you have to just call view and pass result variable. you can use like your paginate object.

So, let's see bellow example step by step.

Create Route

In next step, we will add new one route in web.php file. route we will call controller method So let's simply create both route as bellow listed:


Route::get('paginate', 'PaginationController@index');

Create Controller

Here, we will create PaginationController with two method, one for call route and another for creating custom pagination. So let's add controller as like bellow:



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use Illuminate\Pagination\Paginator;

use Illuminate\Support\Collection;

use Illuminate\Pagination\LengthAwarePaginator;

class PaginationController extends Controller



* The attributes that are mass assignable.


* @var array


public function index()


$myArray = [

['id'=>1, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 CRUD'],

['id'=>2, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 Ajax CRUD'],

['id'=>3, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 CORS Middleware'],

['id'=>4, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 Autocomplete'],

['id'=>5, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 Image Upload'],

['id'=>6, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 Ajax Request'],

['id'=>7, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 Multiple Image Upload'],

['id'=>8, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 Ckeditor'],

['id'=>9, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 Rest API'],

['id'=>10, 'title'=>'Laravel 6 Pagination'],


$myCollectionObj = collect($myArray);

$data = $this->paginate($myCollectionObj);

return view('paginate', compact('data'));



* The attributes that are mass assignable.


* @var array


public function paginate($items, $perPage = 5, $page = null, $options = [])


$page = $page ?: (Paginator::resolveCurrentPage() ?: 1);

$items = $items instanceof Collection ? $items : Collection::make($items);

return new LengthAwarePaginator($items->forPage($page, $perPage), $items->count(), $perPage, $page, $options);



Create View File

Here, we just need to create blade file to print data. so let's create simple blade file as like bellow:


<div class="container">

<table class="table table-bordered">





@foreach($data as $post)


<td>{{ $post->id }}</td>

<td>{{ $post->title }}</td>





{{ $data->links() }}

Now you can run and check.

I hope it can help you...
