Server Side Pagination in Angular Example and Tutorial

While working with huge data in the web application, It's not a good approach to paginate data at client side. In such cases server side pagination is required to maintain the performance of the application.

In this article today, I am going to explain to you about how to do server-side pagination in angular application. Here I will explain the steps needed for the pagination. I assume that you have basic understanding of creating angular application with angular CLI command. If not, find here Getting Started with Angular to setup the Angular application from scratch.


Let's Get Started


Step 1: Install ngx-pagination

At first we need to install the dependencies with npm command over terminal. Move to project folder over terminal and type below command to install the needed package for pagination.

npm i --save ngx-pagination


After installing the above package, add it to import section in app.module.ts file.

import { NgxPaginationModule } from 'ngx-pagination';



imports: [






Step 2: Create dummy records for pagination

For the simplicity in this demo, I am going to have static data so that we don't need to make any HTTP request here. So at first I am going to create the records and set the config values for the pagination in the app.component.ts file. So open your app.component.ts file and put the below code:


import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { ActivatedRoute, Router } from '@angular/router';
selector: 'app-root',
templateUrl: './app.component.html',
styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
config: any;
collection = [];
constructor(private route: ActivatedRoute, private router: Router) {
this.config = {
currentPage: 1,
itemsPerPage: 10,
params => this.config.currentPage= params['page']?params['page']:1 );
for (let i = 1; i <= 100; i++) {
this.collection.push(`item ${i}`);
pageChange(newPage: number) {
    this.router.navigate([''], { queryParams: { page: newPage } });


In the above code, we can see, We have set every logic and config needed for the pagination.


Step 3: Update app.component.html page

Open the app.component.html page and put below code in it:


<div class="jumbotron">
<div class="text-center">
<a href=""><h2>JSON WORLD</h2></a>
<a href="" target="_blank"><span>Server Side Pagination in Angular using ngx-pagination</span></a>
<div class="list">
<li *ngFor="let item of collection | paginate: config">{{ item }}</li>
<pagination-controls (pageChange)="pageChange($event)" class="my-pagination"></pagination-controls>


Step 4: Run the app

Here we are done with all the steps,  So move to the terminal and run the app with npm start. A page will open over URL : http://localhost:4200/ like below.
