How to make a good PHP + MySQL + JS pagination system?

Last Modified: 2017-03-06
Hi guys,

I'm making a fast food site where I'm using tabs to show different food categories. The tab's titles are fetched from MySQL (food categories - pizza, hamburgers, etc).

Inside each tab, I want to make a pagination system (so 100 types of pizza are not displayed at once). Paginating items is not difficult but in this case, "next page" shouldn't load a new page but only new items... so I'm guessing javascript is needed.

What would be a good and stable approach to this? Any examples out there? I found some but none exactly what I'm looking for.

Thanks in advance!
