I've created a TemplateTag for using the new Paginator class directly from a template.
It might be nice to add this to the documentation of Paginator or maybe even the django code page.

Ofcourse most people will use the paginator from a view or a generic view, but there are also some
quite good use cases for paginating something directly in a template. For instance a related list or
a generic list of things which is not the main object_list of the page.

The tag and usage examples are at:

It currently lacks support for 'first' and 'last' keywords on the page parameter. I'll add it soon.

One of the points in django's template system is to avoid "programming" in the templates, so the paginator *should* be made in the view and passed to the template.
On the other side, django docs *do not* link outside themselves (or should not). Adding to can be done by anyone PaginatorTag.

So either:

  • You can edit your own wiki page
  • You can link you snippet from the page I linked above
  • You can bring this to django-developers for discussion and if aplicable reopen the ticket. But, please, do it after we get 1.0 out! ;)
