Client side pagination not working in smart table


So I got a Smart-table for witch I reload the entire data-set (I need it for a graph). but I don't want all data to get rendered at once (got too many). So in the documentation there is something called "Client Side Pagination" but that does not seem to work for some reason. objectDataArr[0] holds the entire data-set

My mock up is:

<div class="container">
    <div class="row">
        <div class="col-md-4">
            <h1><strong>Preview Data: {{objectTranslations[objectData.LangKey]}}</strong></h1>
        </div>
        <div class="col-md-8">
        </div>
    </div>
    <div class="row">
        <table st-table="objectDataArr[0]" class="table table-striped">
            <thead>
                <tr>
                    <th ng-repeat="col in objectData.Tables[0].Columns" st-sort="col.Code" ng-class="{'dd-vh-2':col.Length<=25 , 'dd-vh-5':col.Length>25 && col.Length<=50, 'dd-vh-10':col.Length>50 && col.Length<=100, 'dd-vh-15':col.Length>100 && col.Length<=150, 'dd-vh-20':col.Length>150 && col.Length<=250}">{{objectTranslations[col.LangKey]}}</th>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <th ng-repeat="col in objectData.Tables[0].Columns" ng-class="{'dd-vh-2':col.Length<=25 , 'dd-vh-5':col.Length>25 && col.Length<=50, 'dd-vh-10':col.Length>50 && col.Length<=100, 'dd-vh-15':col.Length>100 && col.Length<=150, 'dd-vh-20':col.Length>150 && col.Length<=250}">
                        <input placeholder="Search ..." st-search="col.Code" />
                    </th>
                </tr>
            </thead>
            <tbody>
                <tr ng-repeat="row in objectDataArr[0]">
                    <td ng-repeat="col in objectData.Tables[0].Columns" ng-class="{'dd-selected': row.showRowButtons == true, 'dd-vh-2':col.Length<=25 , 'dd-vh-5':col.Length>25 && col.Length<=50, 'dd-vh-10':col.Length>50 && col.Length<=100, 'dd-vh-15':col.Length>100 && col.Length<=150, 'dd-vh-20':col.Length>150 && col.Length<=250}">
                        <span class="dd-cell">{{row[col.Code]}}</span>
                    </td>
                </tr>
            </tbody>
            <tfoot>
                <tr>
                    <td colspan="5" class="text-center">
                        <div st-pagination="" st-items-by-page="20" st-displayed-pages="7"></div>
                    </td>
                </tr>
            </tfoot>
        </table>
    </div>
</div>

The problem is that if you load your data asynchronously, which you likely do if I understand your description, you need to tell smart-table to watch the source collection so it can refresh whenever there is a change. For that you need to use the st-safe-src

<table st-safe-src="objectDataArr[0]" st-table="whateverVarYouWantToUseInTheTemplate">
   <tr ng-repeat="item in whateverVarYouWantToUseInTheTemplate"></tr>
</table>

If you're cool like me, you may have forgotten to pass the dependency to your app

angular.module('app', ['ngRoute', 'smart-table'])
