Article box template for rendering one article box:
<script type="text/html" id="article-box-template">
  <div class="article-box">
    <div class="article-head">
      <a href="[[url]]">
        <span class="title">[[title]]</span>
      <span class="date">[[date]]</span>
    <div class="article-content">
HTML used in example:
<style type="text/css">
  .article-box, #page-numbers a { background: #def; padding: 5px 10px; border-radius: 5px; margin-bottom: 10px; }
  #page-numbers a { padding: 5px; display: inline-block; margin-right: 5px; }
  #page-numbers { background: #789; color: white; }

<div id="article-page-example"><!-- articles will be rendered here --></div>
<span id="page-numbers"></span><!-- navigation controls -->
<span id="loading-status">Loading ...</span> <!-- simple loding indicator --> 
Javascript initiation:
Current api does not return maximum number of articles or pages, so number of articles must be passed from template. on blog listing page it can be retrieved with liquid tag {{ articles.size }} as in example. 

<!-- plugin needs jQuery to work -->
<script src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.articlePages.js"></script> 
<script type="text/javascript">
// initiates articles with 5 articles per page and $('#article-page-example').articlePages({ perPage: 5, nr_articles: {{ articles.size }} }); // geting pagelinks jQuery object and adding it into suitable dom element
$('#page-numbers').append($('#article-page-example').articlePages('getPageLinks')); // binding very simple loading indicator $('#article-page-example').on({ 'articles.loading': function() { $('#loading-status').html('Loading ...'); }, 'articles.loaded': function() { $('#loading-status').html(''); } }); </script>
