#2093 closed enhancement (duplicate)

[patch] Better paginator

Reported by: Chris Beaven Owned by: Adrian Holovaty

There's no orhpan feature for the paginator. For example:

22 records, num_per_page=10, orphan=2 --> pages==2, len(self.get_page(1))==12

The paginator should work with lists too.

The patch fixes these and also provides more accurate validation.

I have another useful addition to this patch, up to the Django developers whether it should be added. better_paginator.patch is still fine, this new one has those enhancements + a new object in

class PaginatorPage:
    This class is used to work with a page of a paginator object.
    Pass a paginator object, and a valid page number.
    It uses the same methods as a paginator, except you do not need
    to use a page number.

So it's just a page aware paginator object wrapper.

For example, if you have a paginator object in a view, you can set up a PaginatorPage object (passing the paginator and current page number) and then pass this object directly to your template.

I like the patch. I haven't tested it, but by looking at the code it does seem to improve upon what's already there. In addition, it addresses my enhancement ticket #2352.

Though, I am not sure the PaginatorPage class would be necessary.

It's definately not necessary and is a seperate enhancement, but I have found it useful.

When you have a batch of objects, it is a lot easier dealing with a PaginatorPage object than a Paginator object in the template. I mean why should the template have to know which page it's on when getting the correct batch? It shouldn't - therefore this helps keep that logic in the view while still providing all the useful Paginator methods to the template author.

Could you split this up into two patches please and move the new functionality (the PaginatorPage class) to a new ticket. I am not too enthused (at least, not yet) about the PaginatorPage without it undergoing a bit more work, but the orphan/widow stuff looks pretty straightforward. It's just hard to address two completely separate features in one ticket (the fact that they both talk about pagination is just a coincidence). So if you could split it up and move part of it to a new ticket, then we can handle each part separately.

Split into two tickets at Malcom's request.

#2575 - orphans and general additions to paginator
#2576 - new PaginatorPage object
