In this article, we will tell you how to implement pagination in Django and we are bringing a new course of Django, you will find its link at the last of the article, you must see that, then let's start.

To implement pagination in Django, you will need to do the following:

  1. Add 'django.core.paginator' to the INSTALLED_APPS list in your Django settings file.
  2. In your view function, use the Paginator class to divide the results of your database query into pages. For example:

    from django.core.paginator import Paginator
    def view_function(request):
        # Query the database for a list of objects
        object_list = MyModel.objects.all()
        # Create a paginator object with a specified number of objects per page
        paginator = Paginator(object_list, 10)
        # Get the page number from the request query string, default to 1
        page_number = request.GET.get('page', 1)
        # Use the paginator to get the specified page
        page_obj = paginator.get_page(page_number)
  3. In your template, use the page_obj object and the {% for %} template tag to iterate over the objects in the current page and render them. For example:
    {% for object in page_obj %}
        {{ object }}
    {% endfor %}
  4. Add links to the other pages using the page_obj.has_next and page_obj.has_previous template variables to determine whether to show links to the next and previous pages. You can also use the page_obj.next_page_number and page_obj.previous_page_number variables to get the page numbers to use in the links. For example:
    {% if page_obj.has_previous %}
        <a href="/page?page={{ page_obj.previous_page_number }}">Previous</a>
    {% endif %}
    {% if page_obj.has_next %}
        <a href="/page?page={{ page_obj.next_page_number }}">Next</a>
    {% endif %}


I hope this helps, As I said, we are planning Django's course on our website, you must see it and give your feedback about it.
