In this article we are going to show how to create simple pagination component with pure JavaScript.

Let's suppose we have few variables that describe pages:

  • pageNumber - current page┬ánumber counted from 1 to up┬á(1, 2, 3, ...),
  • pagesCount - total number of pages,
  • radiusSize - maximal number of buttons visible on both sides of active page button.

Practical example

As radius, we understand number of items displayed on left and right site of current page button.

Note: using component, replace /path/to/page/... with correct url.

<head>
  <style>

    div.pager {
    	padding: 20px 0;
    }
    
    a.link { 
    	padding: 5px 10px;
      	text-decoration: none;
      	color: #007bff;
    }

    a.button { 
      	padding: 5px 10px;
      	border: 1px solid;
      	border-radius: 3px;
      	text-decoration: none;
    }
    
    a.button + a.button {
    	margin-left: 5px;
    }
    
    a.button.default {
      	border-color: #66b0ff;

    function calculateRange(pageNumber, pagesCount, radiusSize) {
        var start = pageNumber - radiusSize;
        if (start < 1) {
            return {
                start: 1,
                stop: Math.min(2 * radiusSize + 1, pagesCount),

        if (stop > pagesCount) {
            return {
                start: Math.max(1, pagesCount - 2 * radiusSize),
                stop: pagesCount,
            };
        }
        return { start, stop };
    }
    
    function renderPager(pageNumber, pagesCount, radiusSize) {
      	var pager = '';
    	var range = calculateRange(pageNumber, pagesCount, radiusSize);
      	pager += '<div class="pager">';
      	pager +=	'<a class="link" href="/path/to/page/1">First</a>';
      	for (var i = range.start; i <= range.stop; ++i) {
          	var buttonClass = 'button ' + (i === pageNumber ? 'selected' : 'default');
          	var pagePath = '/path/to/page/' + i;
        	pager += '<a class="' + buttonClass + '" href="' + pagePath + '">' +
                        i +
                     '</a>'
        }
      	pager += '<a class="link" href="/path/to/page/' + pagesCount + '">Last</a>';
      	pager += '</div>';
      	return pager;
    }
    
    // Usage example:
    
    var container = document.querySelector('#pager-container');

    container.innerHTML += renderPager(1, 6, 2);
	container.innerHTML += renderPager(3, 6, 2);
	container.innerHTML += renderPager(4, 6, 2);
	container.innerHTML += renderPager(6, 6, 2);
