Reach me at the project issues section or via email at [email protected], you can also get in touch on the project's Gitter chat room.

The code was based on the original design of jekyll-paginate and features were sourced from discussions such as #27 (thanks G√ľnter Kits).

"Be excellent to each other"



gem install jekyll-paginate-v2

Update your _config.yml and pages.

Although fully backwards compatible, to enable the new features this gem needs slightly extended site yml configuration and miniscule additional new front-matter for the pages to paginate on.

Now you're ready to run jekyll serve and your paginated files should be generated.

Please see the Examples for tips and tricks on how to configure the pagination logic.

:warning: Please note that this plugin is currently NOT supported by GitHub pages. Here is a list of all plugins supported. There is work underway to try to get it added it but until then please follow this GitHub guide to enable it or use Travis CI.

GitLab supposedly supports any plugin.

Pagination Generator

The Pagination Generator forms the core of the pagination logic. Calculates and generates the pagination pages.

Auto Pages

The Auto-Pages is an optional feature that auto-magically generates paginated pages for all your tags, categories and collections.

Issues / to-be-completed

  • Unit-tests do not cover all critical code paths
  • No integration tests yet #2
  • Exclude filter not implemented #6
  • Elegant way of collecting and printing debug information during pagination

I welcome all testers and people willing to give me feedback and code reviews.
