Dynamic Data Pagination Plugin For jQuery - simplePaging

A simple yet easy-to-style jQuery pagination plugin which can be used to paginate local/remote JSON data with several useful customization options.

Basic usage:

1. Create the placeholder element to place the content & pagination links.

<div id="pager">
<div id="content">

2. Create the content & error templates on the web page as these:

<script type="text/template" id="contentTemplate">
      Firstname: {0}
      Lastname: {1}

<script type="text/template" id="contentErrorTemplate">
      There is no data to show.

3. Load the latest version of jQuery library and the jQuery simplePaging plugin at the end of the html document.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="simplePaging1.0.js"></script>

4. Define your own data in the JavaScript:

var data = [

5. Activate the pagination plugin.


  data: data,   
  contentHolder: 'content', 
  template: 'contentTemplate', 
  errorTemplate: 'contentErrorTemplate',
  informationToShow: ['firstname', 'lastname'],
  informationToRefineBy: ['firstname', 'lastname']

6. Apply your own CSS styles to the pagination controls.

.pager span.current {
  border: red;
  border-radius: 5px;
  font-weight: bold;
  color: red;

.dataError {
  width: 100%;
  font-size: 20px;
  text-align: center;
  padding: 10px;

.searchBox {
  width: 300px;
  margin: 0 auto;

.searchBox .search {
  width: 100%;
  height: 30px;

.showing {
  width: 100%;
  text-align: center;

.dropdown:hover .dropdown-menu { display: block; }

.pager span {
  border-radius: 5px;
  border: #a6a6a8 1px solid;
  padding: 5px 14px;
  margin: 0 3px;
  cursor: pointer;
  -moz-user-select: none;
  -webkit-user-select: none;
  -ms-user-select: none;

.pager span:hover { background-color: #ddd; }

.pager span.current:hover {
  background-color: #fff;
  cursor: default;

.pager {
  padding-left: 0;
  margin: 20px 0;
  text-align: center;
  list-style: none;

7. All default settings to customize the pagination plugin.


  // JSON data source
  data: {},   

  // ID for the content
  contentHolder: '', 

  // content template
  template: '', 

  // error template
  errorTemplate: '',

  // information to show from the given data
  informationToShow: [],   

  // information to search on from the given data
  informationToRefineBy: [], 

  // number of entries per page
  perPage: 10, 

  // page lengths
  pageLengths: [5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50], 

  // default start page
  startPage: 1, 

  // number of pages to show at the top
  pagesToShow: 5,   

  // show the per page options.
  showOptions: true, 

  // show the search bar.
  showSearch: true,   

  // Show the pager even if there isn't any data
  alwaysShowPager: true   

8. The plugin provides a custom event which will be fired when you change the page.

$('#pager').on('pagingChange', function() {
  // do something
