NMPaginator

NMPaginator is a simple Objective-C class that handles pagination for you. It makes it easy to display results from API webservices that take page and per_page parameters.

e.g. Flickr API :

http://api.flickr.com/services/rest/?method=flickr.photos.search&text=beach&per_page=20&page=2

The demo project also includes a UITableView that automatically loads the next page of results as you scroll down.

How to install

With Cocoapods

Add this to your Podfile:

pod 'NMPaginator', '~> 1.0.0'

For more information on how to set up Cocoapods, check out the official site.

Manually

Copy NMPaginator.h and NMPaginator.m to your project. That's it.

How to use

Custom Paginator Class

You need to sublass NMPaginator and implement the fetchResultsWithPage:pageSize: method :

// MyPaginator.h
#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
#import "NMPaginator.h"
@interface MyPaginator : NMPaginator
@end

// MyPaginator.m
#import "MyPaginator.h"
@implementation MyPaginator
- (void)fetchResultsWithPage:(NSInteger)page pageSize:(NSInteger)pageSize
{
    // you code goes here
    // once you receive the results for the current page, just call [self receivedResults:results total:total];
}
@end

ViewController

In your ViewController header file, conform to NMPaginatorDelegate protocol and add a property for the paginator :

// ViewController.h
@interface ViewController () <NMPaginatorDelegate>
@property (nonatomic, strong) MyPaginator *paginator;
@end

In your ViewController implementation file, instantiate the paginator in viewDidLoad (for instance) :

// ViewController.m
- (void)viewDidLoad
{
    [super viewDidLoad];
    self.myPaginator = [[MyPaginator alloc] initWithPageSize:10 delegate:self];
}

And ask for results like this :

// ViewController.m
[self.myPaginator fetchNextPage];

You will get the results through the delegate method :

// ViewController.m
- (void)paginator:(id)paginator didReceiveResults:(NSArray *)results 
{
    // handle new results
}

To make the UITableView work, please have a look at the demo project.

To demonstrate NMPaginator, I used the FlickFetcher class from the great Stanford CS193P course.
