Zend\Paginator is a flexible component for paginating collections of data and presenting that data to users.

The primary design goals of Zend\Paginator are as follows:

  • Paginate arbitrary data, not just relational databases
  • Fetch only the results that need to be displayed
  • Do not force users to adhere to only one way of displaying data or rendering pagination controls
  • Loosely couple Zend\Paginator to other Zend Framework components so that users who wish to use it independently of Zend\View, Zend\Db, etc. can do so
