[Screencast] Infinite Scrolling

[Screencast] Infinite Scrolling

Infinite scrolling is now a common feature and there are several cases where it is really useful. For instance there are some websites where we simply can’t imagine a good pagination system, like Twitter or even Facebook.


When using will_paginate, each subsequent “page” will take longer and longer to load because will_paginate uses OFFSET. For infinite scroll you really want to use keyset pagination instead, e.g. https://github.com/glebm/order_query.

Do you have a full example of using order_query for pagination in a Rails app?

I haven’t got around to making an example app yet, unfortunately.

Well, I’ll keep my eye out then.
