Django template tag for rendering Page objects as Bootstrap pagination HTML

README.md

Stories in Ready

Django Bootstrap Pagination

Note: This version is compatible with Bootstrap 3.x only! Please use the 1.0.x branch for Bootstrap 2 support.

This application serves to make using Twitter's Bootstrap Pagination styles work seamlessly with Django Page objects. By passing in a Page object and one or more optional arguments, Bootstrap pagination bars and pagers can be rendered with very little effort.

Compatible with Django 1.3+

Installation

PIP

This will install the latest stable release from PyPi.

    pip install django-bootstrap-pagination

Download

Download the latest stable distribution from:

http://pypi.python.org/pypi/django-bootstrap-pagination

Download the latest development version from:

github @ http://www.github.com/jmcclell/django-bootstrap-pagination

    setup.py install

Usage

Setup

Make sure you include bootstrap_pagination in your installed_apps list in settings.py:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        'bootstrap_pagination',
    )

Additionally, include the following snippet at the top of any template that makes use of the pagination tags:

    {% load bootstrap_pagination %}

Finally, make sure that you have the request context processor enabled:

TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
    "django.core.context_processors.request",
)

bootstrap_paginate

All Optional Arguments

  • range - Defines the maximum number of page links to show
  • show_prev_next - Boolean. Defines whether or not to show the Previous and Next links. (Accepts "true" or "false")
  • previous_label - The label to use for the Previous link
  • next_label - The label to use for the Next link
  • show_first_last - Boolean. Defines whether or not to show the First and Last links. (Accepts "true" or "false")
  • first_label - The label to use for the First page link
  • last_label - The label to use for the Last page link
  • url_view_name - A named URL reference (such as one that might get passed inti the URL template tag) to use as the URL template. Must be resolvable by the reverse() function. If this option is not specified, the tag simply uses a relative url such as "?page=1" which is fine in most situations
  • url_param_name - Determines the name of the GET parameter for the page number. Th default is "page". If no url_view_name is defined, this string is appended to the url as "?{{url_param_name}}=1".
  • url_extra_args - Only valid when url_view_name is set. Additional arguments to pass into reverse() to resolve the URL.
  • url_extra_kwargs - Only valid when url_view_name is set. Additional named arguments to pass into reverse() to resolve the URL. Additionally, the template tag will add an extra parameter to this for the page, as it is assumed that if given a url_name, the page will be a named variable in the URL regular expression. In this case, the url_param_name continues to be the string used to represent the name. That is, by default, url_param_name is equal to "page" and thus it is expected that there is a named "page" argument in the URL referenced by url_view_name. This allows us to use pretty pagination URLs such as "/page/1"

Basic Usage

The following will show a pagination bar with a link to every page, a previous link, and a next link:

    {% bootstrap_paginate page_obj %}

The following will show a pagination bar with at most 10 page links, a previous link, and a next link:

    {% bootstrap_paginate page_obj range=10 %}

The following will show a pagination bar with at most 10 page links, a first page link, and a last page link:

    {% bootstrap_paginate page_obj range=10 show_prev_next="false" show_first_last="true" %}

Advanced Usage

Given a url configured such as:

    archive_index_view = ArchiveIndexView.as_view(
        date_field='date',
        paginate_by=10,            
        allow_empty=True,
        queryset=MyModel.all(),
        template_name='example/archive.html'    
    )

    urlpatterns = patterns(
        'example.views',
        url(r'^$', archive_index_view, name='archive_index'),
        url(r'^page/(?P<page>\d+)/$', archive_index_view,
            name='archive_index_paginated'))

We could simply use the basic usage (appending ?page=#) with the archive_index URL above, as the archive_index_view class based generic view from django doesn't care how it gets the page parameter. However, if we want pretty URLs, such as those defined in the archive_index_paginated URL (ie: /page/1), we need to define the URL in our template tag:

    {% bootstrap_paginate page_obj url_view_name="archive_index_paginated" %}

Because we are using a default page parameter name of "page" and our URL requires no other parameters, everything works as expected. If our URL required additional parameters, we would pass them in using the optional arguments url_extra_args and url_extra_kwargs. Likewise, if our page parameter had a different name, we would pass in a different url_param_name argument to the template tag.

bootstrap_pager

A much simpler implementation of the Bootstrap Pagination functionality is the Pager, which simply provides a Previous and Next link.

All Optional Arguments

  • previous_label - Defines the label for the Previous link
  • next_label - Defines the label for the Next link
  • previous_title - Defines the link title for the previous link
  • next_title - Defines the link title for the next link
  • centered - Boolean. Defines whether or not the links are centered. Defaults to false. (Accepts "true" or "false")
  • url_view_name - A named URL reference (such as one that might get passed inti the URL template tag) to use as the URL template. Must be resolvable by the reverse() function. If this option is not specified, the tag simply uses a relative url such as "?page=1" which is fine in most situations
  • url_param_name - Determines the name of the GET parameter for the page number. Th default is "page". If no url_view_name is defined, this string is appended to the url as "?{{url_param_name}}=1".
  • url_extra_args - Only valid when url_view_name is set. Additional arguments to pass into reverse() to resolve the URL.
  • url_extra_kwargs - Only valid when url_view_name is set. Additional named arguments to pass into reverse() to resolve the URL. Additionally, the template tag will add an extra parameter to this for the page, as it is assumed that if given a url_name, the page will be a named variable in the URL regular expression. In this case, the url_param_name continues to be the string used to represent the name. That is, by default, url_param_name is equal to "page" and thus it is expected that there is a named "page" argument in the URL referenced by url_view_name. This allows us to use pretty pagination URLs such as "/page/1"

Usage

Usage is basically the same as for bootstrap_paginate. The simplest usage is:

    {% bootstrap_pager page_obj %}

A somewhat more advanced usage might look like:

    {% bootstrap_pager page_obj previous_label="Newer Posts" next_label="Older Posts" url_view_name="post_archive_paginated" %}
