Multilingual pagination plugin with category support for Jekyll

Yet another multilingual pagination plugin for Jekyll

With category support

This is an attempt to have a simple multilingual pagination plugin that supports categories.

Check the demo


Copy _plugins/LanguageAndCategoriesPagination.rb to your _plugins folder

Create a index.html file for each required pagination, as an example entries_arduino/index.html would act as the starting point for the Arduino category.

Each starting point must be called index.html and it should contain a posts_per_page variable on the Front Matter header. Please note: do not specify a permalink on the starting points.

To enable language pagination, specify a language variable on the Front Matter of the starting point and in any post that should be included.

To enable category pagination, specify a category variable on the Front Matter of the starting point and in any related post.

Starting point example

layout: default
title: Arduino English entries
category: arduino
language: en
posts_per_page: 3
{% include entries.html %}

Pagination loop example entries.html

<h2>{{ page.title }}</h2>

{% for post in page.pagination.posts %}
    {{ post.title }}
{% endfor %}

Showing from {{ page.pagination.from }} to {{ }} of {{ page.pagination.total_posts }}

<a href="{{page.pagination.previous_page_path}}">Previous</a>

<a href="{{page.pagination.next_page_path}}">Next</a>

Post example

layout: post
title:  "Some Arduino news"
date:   2016-02-28 13:00:00 +1300
categories: electronic arduino diy
language: en
Ut non enim eleifend felis pretium feugiat. Phasellus ullamcorper ipsum rutrum nunc.

_plugins/MenuActiveUrl.rb is not required, but helps to highlight items in a dynamic menu, check _includes/menu.html for an example.
