Laravel LinkHeader Paginator
A custom Laravel/Lumen Paginator that uses the Link header (RFC 5988) to send pagination info in the response. Removes the envelope around
Adds a method called
toResponse that returns a JSON response with headers. The
getHeaders method exists if you need different response data.
$ composer require danbovey/laravel-linkheader-paginator
Create the pagination with the Eloquent/DB Builder and pass it to the
$items = User::where('active', 1)->paginate(20); $paginator = new LengthAwarePaginator($items); return $paginator->toResponse();
The simple paginator does not need to know the total number of items in the result set; however, because of this, the class does not return the URI of the last page.
Ironically, the simple paginator is more work using this library. To save on queries you should skip using the method
simplePaginate, and implement the
take logic yourself.
$page = $request->get('page'); $perPage = 20; // Take one more than needed to see if there is a next page $users = User::skip(($page - 1) * $perPage) ->take($perPage + 1); $paginator = new Paginator($simple, $items); return $paginator->toResponse();
