How to add Pagination in Nextjs using Algolia ?
In this article, we will learn How we can add pagination in the NextJS project using Algolia. NextJS is a React-based framework. It has the power to Develop beautiful Web applications for different platforms like Windows, Linux, and mac. The linking of dynamic paths helps in rendering your NextJS components conditionally.
Approach: To add our search feature first we are going to create an account in algolia that enables us to search content in milliseconds. After that, we will get the API keys that we will use later in our app. Then we will create a new index to upload our data. On the homepage of our app, we will fetch the data with the search widget from algolia using the API keys and algoliasearch module.
Create NextJS Application:
Step 1: You can create a new NextJs project using the below command:
npx create-next-app gfg
Step 2: To add Algolia search in our project we are going to install two modules:
npm install algoliasearch react-instantsearch-dom
Project Structure: It will look like the following.
Step 3: Setting up Algolia. Algolia enables developers to build next-generation apps with APIs that deliver relevant content in milliseconds. So to use algolia first create a free account and get the API keys of that account.
1. To get the API keys Go to settings > API Keys
2. After that create an index and upload the data that you want to search. You can upload the data in json, csv format or by using their API.
For this example, I am uploading the below data.
Title, Tag, Day GFG1, python, Monday GFG2, java, Tuesday GFG3, css, Wednesday GFG4, html, Thursday GFG5, react, Friday GFG6, nextjs, Saturday
Step 4: Now we can use the API to add the pagination feature in NextJs Project. After that to use our pagination we are going to add the below code in the index.js file.
Step to run the application: After that run the app with the below code:-
npm run dev
