st-pagination

Simple pagination using jQuery.

browser support

Storyteller Pagination enables you to create "endless" pagination by appending the contents of the next page in a set to the current one. It will asynchronously request the contents of the next page, filter them, and cache them until the "next" button is clicked.

Usage

In order to use Storyteller Pagination, your page needs to be capable of loading dynamic content using a URL parameter (like /page/5, ?p=5, or ?skip=25). In your markup, you need a container with an id (#content), an element containing paginated elements (.st-items), and a next button (.st-next). The last two selectors can be configured.

<div id="content" class="pagination" data-url="/page/:p">
    <ul class="st-items">
        <!-- Your rendering loop should be here -->
        <li><!-- Your content in here --></li>
    </ul>
    <a class="st-next" href="#next">Next</a>
</div>

As long as you have an id on the containing element, an st-items class on the items element, and an st-next class on the next button, you can use any markup you want:

<div id="content" class="pagination" data-url="/page/:p">
    <h1>My YouTube Favorites</h1>
    <sub>A list of my favorite videos from all across YouTube!</sub>
    <a class="st-next" href="#next">Next</a>
    <section class="st-items">
        {{#favorites}}
        <article>
            <h4>{{title}}</h4>
            <img src="{{thumbnail}}" />
            <var class="duration">{{duration}}</var>
            <em class="author">{{author}}</em>
            <p class="description">{{description}}</p>
            <a href="{{link}}">Watch Now!</a>
        </article>
        {{/favorites}}
    </section>
    <a class="st-next" href="#next">Next</a>
</div>

The code to start the plugin itself will also need to be run:

$(function(){
    // Since we gave all the containers the "st-pagination" class...
    $('.pagination').stPagination();
});

Configuration

Configuration options can be set in two ways: through data attributes on the main element (the one stPagination is called on), or with a configuration object passed directly to the plugin.

Parameter Type Default Purpose
url string ?p=:p The URL for the next page in the set, replacing the page number with ":p"
type string page Determines the type of pagination--can be page, for APIs that use page numbers, or skip, for APIs that skip a certain number of results.
start integer 1 What page/item number to start paginating from.
selectors object {} An object of selector names and selector strings. next is the selector for the 'next' button, items is the selector for the container which items are appended to, and item is the selector for individual items. Use this to replace the default st-items and st-next classes. This cannot be set with a data attribute.
events object {} An object of event names and functions. This is basically just a shortcut for binding to these events with .on(). This cannot be set with a data attribute.
<!-- Configuring a "skip" paginator with a default skip start -->
<div id="content" class="st-pagination" data-url="start=:p" data-type="skip" data-start="25">
// Configuring a "page" paginator with a default page start
$('#content').stPagination({
    url: '?page=:p',
    type: 'page',
    start: 1
});

Events

Storyteller Pagination makes the following events available:

Event Arguments Purpose
next event, element Fires when the next set of elements is appended.
complete event, element Fires when the next page no longer returns results and pagination is over.

These events can be bound in two ways: with an events object in the stPagination() configuration object, or with jQuery's normal event bindings.

// Binding inside the configuration object
$('.st-pagination').stPagination({
    events: {
        next: function( event, element ){ console.log( 'next', event, element ); },
        complete: function( event, element ){ console.log( 'complete', event, element ); }
    }
});

// Binding with normal events
$('.st-pagination').on( 'next', function( event, element ){ console.log( 'next', event, element ); });

// ... and with an events object
$('.st-pagination').on({
    next: function( event, element ){ console.log( 'next', event, element ); },
    complete: function( event, element ){ console.log( 'complete', event, element ); }
});
