AngularJS Question

How to do paging in AngularJS?

I have a dataset of about 1000 items in-memory and am attempting to create a pager for
this dataset, but I'm unsure how to do this.

I'm using a custom filter function to filter the results, and that works fine, but somehow I need to get the number of pages out.

Any clues?

Angular UI Bootstrap - Pagination Directive

Check out UI Bootstrap's pagination directive. I ended up using it rather than what is posted here as it has enough features for my current use and has a thorough test spec to accompany it.

View

<!-- table here -->

<pagination 
  ng-model="currentPage"
  total-items="todos.length"
  max-size="maxSize"  
  boundary-links="true">
</pagination>

<!-- items/page select here if you like -->

Controller

todos.controller("TodoController", function($scope) {
   $scope.filteredTodos = []
  ,$scope.currentPage = 1
  ,$scope.numPerPage = 10
  ,$scope.maxSize = 5;

  $scope.makeTodos = function() {
    $scope.todos = [];
    for (i=1;i<=1000;i++) {
      $scope.todos.push({ text:"todo "+i, done:false});
    }
  };
  $scope.makeTodos(); 

  $scope.$watch("currentPage + numPerPage", function() {
    var begin = (($scope.currentPage - 1) * $scope.numPerPage)
    , end = begin + $scope.numPerPage;

    $scope.filteredTodos = $scope.todos.slice(begin, end);
  });
});

I have made a working plunker for reference.


Legacy Version:

View

<!-- table here -->

<div data-pagination="" data-num-pages="numPages()" 
  data-current-page="currentPage" data-max-size="maxSize"  
  data-boundary-links="true"></div>

<!-- items/page select here if you like -->

Controller

todos.controller("TodoController", function($scope) {
   $scope.filteredTodos = []
  ,$scope.currentPage = 1
  ,$scope.numPerPage = 10
  ,$scope.maxSize = 5;

  $scope.makeTodos = function() {
    $scope.todos = [];
    for (i=1;i<=1000;i++) {
      $scope.todos.push({ text:"todo "+i, done:false});
    }
  };
  $scope.makeTodos(); 

  $scope.numPages = function () {
    return Math.ceil($scope.todos.length / $scope.numPerPage);
  };

  $scope.$watch("currentPage + numPerPage", function() {
    var begin = (($scope.currentPage - 1) * $scope.numPerPage)
    , end = begin + $scope.numPerPage;

    $scope.filteredTodos = $scope.todos.slice(begin, end);
  });
});
