What does it do? It provides a set of tools so that you wouldn't bother about paginating and caching your data in a react/redux application.

How does it work? It just stores your cached data in a redux store in chunks, so it can be easily accessed.

How can I make it work? The package consists of a reducer, a middleware and a component wrapper. You need to import all of them to make it work.

First step: Import a reducer from 'lets-paginate' and add it to your main reducer:

// reducers.js
import { reducer } from 'lets-paginate'
// ...
const reducers = {
  // ...
  pagination: reducer
// ...
export default combineReducers(reducers)

Second step: Import a middleware and add it to applyMiddleware function provided by redux

import { createStore, applyMiddleware } from 'redux'
import { middleware as paginationMiddleware } from 'lets-paginate'
import reducer from './reducers'
// ...
const store = createStore(reducer, applyMiddleware(paginationMiddleware, thunk, logger))

Third step: Import reduxPagination wrapper and attach it to your component. There are two configuration options you have to provide: names is an array of unique names for your data, fetch is a array of functions where you fetch new data from an external source. The rest of the parameters are optional, array allDataExpected with a value of [true] indicated that a list users is going to be fetched only once. Optional function mapStateAndDispatchToProps is a combination of functions mapStateToProps and mapDispatchToProps provided to connect from react-redux and works the same way except it takes state, dispatch and ownProps arguments at once.

import { reduxPagination } from 'lets-paginate'
// ...
export default reduxPagination({
  names: ['users'],
  fetch: [getUsers],
  allDataExpected: [true] // default - false
}, mapStateAndDispatchToProps)(Users)

Fourth step: Implement function fetch. Example below:

export const getUsers ({ page, entries }, saveData, options) => dispatch =>
  API.users.get({ page, entries })
    .then(response =>
    .catch(() => [])
    .then(data => {
      // function saveData saves your data to redux state, it is necessary

How you fetch data is up to you as soon as you execute saveData function with a fetched data. You might use redux-thunk as in the example above however lets-paginate is compatible with redux-saga as well.

API reference:

When you wrap your React component with reduxPagination (like the example above) and you name your list users, you will get a few new props:

  • dataUsers is a prop that contains a piece of your cached data basing on values of page and entries. It takes a value of undefined when new data is being fetched.
  • pageUsers is a number of current page
  • entriesUsers is a number of items on a current page
  • onPageChangeUsers({ page, entries } [, options]) is a function that sets new values of page and entries and updates data. When your cached data lacks data basing on a new values of page and entries it automatically dispatches function fetch (provided in reduxPagination). Optional argument options will be passed to the fetch function as the last argument.
  • onAddItemUsers(item [, index]) is a fuction that adds a new element to your cached data at index. Default value of index is 0. onAddItem with a value of index equal to -1 adds the item after the last element of cached data.
  • onRemoveItemUsers(index) is a function that removes element at index
  • resetUsers() is a function that deletes all cached data

Notice that props are generated using the name of your list is a camelCase practice.

You can provide as many names as you want. The only requirement is that the length of an each array (names, fetch and allDataExpected) has to be equal. The order in the arrays matters just the same.

export default reduxPagination({
  names: ['streets', 'cities', 'countires'],
  fetch: [getStreets, getCities, getCountries],
  allDataExpected: [false, true, true]
}, mapStateAndDispatchToProps)(Users)

Using the example above you will get many generated props: dataStreets, dataCities, dataCountires, pageStreets, pageCities, pageCountries, entriesStreets etc.

Using the same name for your list in different components gives you an access to the same list stored in a redux store. It is a way to share data between components.


You can manually access the data from the store by using a selector:

import { connect } from 'react-redux'
import { selector } from 'lets-paginate'
// ...
const usersSelector = selector('users')
const mapStateToProps = (state) => {
  const { page, entries } = state
  return {
    data: usersSelector(state, { page, entries })
export default connect(mapStateToProps)(Users)
  • selector(name)(state, { page, entries }) returns a selected piece of the data, if any of the data is missing the function returns undefined.
  • selector(name)(state) returns all the stored data
