Pagination with Django's generic ListView Posted on

Did you know the Django ListView supports pagination out of the box? All you need to do is specify the number of items per page with the paginate_by attribute:

class ArticleList(ListView):
    model = Article
    paginate_by = 10

The queryset available in object_list will be paginated, so you will only get 10 results. page_obj and paginator will be added to the context so you can have pagination buttons and know which page you are on.

The documentation for this is buried under MultipleObjectMixin’s documentation.
