An ActiveModel concern for basic paging without an extra count query.

gem install next-pageable -v 0.2.0



A minimalstic ActiveRecord concern for basic paging support of ActiveRecord relations avoiding extra count queries where not needed.

This gem is the perfect companion for turbo-scroll.



Install the gem and add to the application's Gemfile by executing:

$ bundle add next-pageable

If bundler is not being used to manage dependencies, install the gem by executing:

$ gem install next-pageable


To make your ActiveRecord relations pageable, inlude NextPageable on the models that you want to enrich.

class Article < ActiveRecord::Base
  include NextPageable

Alternatively, you can include NextPageable directly on your ApplicationRecord if you want it to be available to all of your models.

class ApplicationRecord < ActiveRecord::Base
    include NextPageable

For models that are enriched one extra class method page becomes available. It can be chained onto existing scope methods but should be the last method in the chain.

page = # returns the 1st page for all articles
page = # returns the 4th page for articles currently in stock

Default pagesize is 15 but it can be passed as an extra parameter.

page =, pagesize: 50) # returns the 2nd page for all articles with a pagesize of 50

You can directly iterate over the records on the page object.

page.each do |article|
  puts article

A page object also knows if there is a next page available and what the page value is.

page.next_page? # true
page.next_page_index # 4
