Pagination: Trying to make the pagination world a better place

Why another pagination library?

Because I constantly work with designers, who prefer to have their own pagination markup customized to their heart's content. Current problems I have:

  1. It is very hard for me to change the markup with the current libraries out there.
  2. No Ohm / Redis support available (as far as I know).
  3. NIH?

Name the Niche:

This is currently streamlined for use with:

  1. Sinatra
  2. Ohm
  3. HAML

How to use?

require 'rubygems'
require 'sinatra'
require 'pagination'

helpers Pagination::Helpers

get '/items' do
  # Let's say current_user returns a User model with an items method

  @items = paginate current_user.items, :page => params[:page]

  haml :'items/index'
end

# then in your view index.haml

!= pagination @items

Customize the markup?

pagination haml
# Spits out the pagination haml markup that's being used

# Or if you prefer erb, you can also do that too...
pagination erb

# Then you can just use it as a partial
pagination haml > app/views/pagination.haml

# in your view
!= partial :pagination, :items => @items
