Aspirator

Aspirator is an easy to use paginator, written for ASP.NET MVC. It was inspired by will_paginate plugin from Ruby-on-Rails.

Quick install:

The easiest way to install is via nuget.

install-package aspirator.mvc3

This will install the package and add the library reference. Note that the nuget package references the ASP.NET MVC 3 assembly.

Basic usage

Aspirator works with any collection that implements the IQueryable<T> interface. The IQueryable<T> is required to load only the displayed rows from the DB.

Define your list view model that will be used in views.

public class RegionsList : PagedList<Region> {
	public RegionsList(IQueryable<Region> source, int index, int pageSize)
	    : base(source, index, pageSize) {
	}
}

Controller code

public ViewResult Index(int? page, int pageSize = 10) {
    return View(new RegionsList(db.Regions.OrderBy(x=>x.Id), page - 1 ?? 0, pageSize));
}

View code

@using KiP.Web.Mvc.Pagination
@Html.Pager(Model)

The paging links will look as follows:

← 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 →

There are various customizations available, accessible via parameters to Pager extension method:

For details, see customization wiki.
