Python – Django AJAX Pagination with Search and Sort

In this tutorial, we are going to build a simple AJAX Pagination with search and sort using Python with Django framework. This tutorial assumes that you already have an existing Module built using the latest Django framework. What you see in the above picture is exactly what we are going to build out. So let’s get started.

Create the base template mymodule/templates/mymodule/base.html:

Then create the products template: mymodule/templates/mymodule/products.html and include the code bellow:

Create the controller that will handle both GET and POST methods to the products page. The code bellow goes to your mymodule/views.py

Of course you need to update the models used bellow to match your requirements. If you need to see how the “Product” model implementation looks like, you can find it at the end of this tutorial.

Register the view in our mymodule/urls.py:

Create a javascript file “app.js” under mymodule\static\mymodule\js then add the following:

Finally, let’s add css styling to our pagination. Create a css file “styles.css” under mymodule\static\mymodule\css then add the following:

That’s it, we’re done! Go ahead and test it!

Here is how my Product model implementation looks like:
