In this new tutorial posted to the TutsPlus.com site author Sajal Soni shares "the complete guide" to handling pagination in a CodeIgniter framework application using built-in tooling included with the framework.
The benefit of using any full-stack web application framework is that you don't have to worry about the common tasks like input handling, form validation and the like, as the framework already provides wrappers for those features. Thus, it allows you to concentrate on the business logic of the application rather than reinventing the wheel over and over again.
Today, we're going to explore an important library in the CodeIgniter framework—the pagination library.
The tutorial walks you through three main things: the basics of the pagination functionality, options you can use to customize it and the configuration options available for the component. Each section comes with code and configuration examples showing how to use the component.
