"""Pagination for Collections and ORMs

The Pagination module aids in the process of paging large collections of
objects. It can be used macro-style for automatic fetching of large collections
using one of the ORM wrappers, or handle a large collection responding to
standard Python list slicing operations. These methods can also be used
individually and customized to do as much or little as desired.

The Paginator itself maintains pagination logic associated with each page, where
it begins, what the first/last item on the page is, etc.

Helper functions hook-up the Paginator in more conveinent methods for the more
macro-style approach to return the Paginator and the slice of the collection

from routes import request_config
from orm import get_wrapper

def paginate(collection, page=None, per_page=10, item_count=None, *args, **options):
    """Paginate a collection of data
    If the collection is a list, it will return the slice of the list along
    with the Paginator object. If the collection is given using an ORM, the
    collection argument must be a partial representing the function to be
    used that will generate the proper query and extend properly for the
        # In this case, Person is a SQLObject class, or it could be a list/tuple
        person_paginator, person_set = paginate(Person, page=1)
    Current ORM support is limited to SQLObject and SQLAlchemy. You can use any ORM
    you'd like with the Paginator as it will give you the offset/limit data necessary
    to make your own query.
    **WARNING:** Unless you pass in an item_count, a count will be performed on the
    collection every time paginate is called. If using an ORM, it's suggested that
    you count the items yourself and/or cache them.
