jQuery Bootstrap Pagination

A simple, full-featured, pagination system for jQuery that outputs Twitter Bootstrap marked up pagination links. Of course, there's no reason you need to use this with Bootstrap, the HTML output is very clean.


The library can be used in CoffeeScript, JavaScript, and Rails applications very easily.



Use the src/jquery-bootstrap-pagination.coffee file.


Use the vendor/assets/javascripts/jquery-bootstrap-pagination.js file. This file is auto generated from the CoffeeScript file.

Rails 3.x

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'jquery-bootstrap-pagination'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Add it to your application.js file:

//= require jquery-bootstrap-pagination



# Basic usage:

# With options:
  total_pages: 10
  current_page: 2
  callback: (event, page) ->
    alert("Page #{page} was clicked!")

# Retrieve the underlying PaginationView:
