  1. I am sorry but I fail to see the point of pagination implemented this way.
    The code still fetches all 100 items from the backend. The idea of pagination is not only to split the long array of items for better viewing (arguably, a long scroll is better than a bunch of pages) but to prevent fetching too much from the API server or database.
    This example fails to deliver.

    1. Agreed, this will keep the same 100 items fetched at build time and nothing else. I am searching for a way to apply server side pagination.

      1. This blog post should be removed, this is not how pagination should work. As @Suslik says, there is no point to pagination this way if we just fetch all of the items.This does not solve the application of server side pagination.

  2. Regardless of what Suslik, Alberto, Jade, or anyone who previously left a reply might have said,
    I have successfully implemented the logic and the final export ‘paginate’ as you instructed.
    When I searched the internet for pagination-related examples, I could only find frustrating ones that work with React but not with Next.js due to hydration issues.
    I attempted to implement libraries like Redux, Redux Toolkit, React Query, and others, but they didn’t apply straightforwardly.
    @Taofiq Aiyelabegan, I don’t know where on Earth you posted this, but you’ve greatly assisted a working professional living in a land of Park Ji-sung, Kim Yuna, Son Heung-min, BTS, New Jin’s, and the K-pop phenomenon.
    From a distant place, I wish you all the best. God bless you.
