Getting started


Python >= 2.7 (or Python 3)
Django >= 1.8
jQuery >= 1.7


The Git repository can be cloned with this command:

git clone

The el_pagination package, included in the distribution, should be placed on the PYTHONPATH.

Otherwise you can just easy_install -Z django-el-pagination or pip install django-el-pagination.


Add the request context processor to your, e.g.:

from django.conf.global_settings import TEMPLATES

TEMPLATES[0]['OPTIONS']['context_processors'].insert(0, 'django.core.context_processors.request')

or just adding it to the context_processors manually like so:

        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': [os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'templates'), ],
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [
                'django.template.context_processors.request', ## For EL-pagination

Add 'el_pagination' to the INSTALLED_APPS to your

See the Customization section for other settings.


Given a template like this:

{% for entry in entries %}
    {# your code to show the entry #}
{% endfor %}

you can use Digg-style pagination to display objects just by adding:

{% load el_pagination_tags %}

{% paginate entries %}
{% for entry in entries %}
    {# your code to show the entry #}
{% endfor %}
{% show_pages %}


This is just a basic example. To continue exploring all the Django Endless Pagination features, have a look at Twitter-style Pagination or Digg-style pagination.
