show-more-items.js is a small and easy list truncation plugin that limits the maximum number of list items to show on the webpage and creates a 'Show More' button to reveal the rest when needed. This is a great jQuery solution to emulate the 'infinite scroll' functionality on your web page containing tons of the list or grid items.

How to use it:

1. Suppose you have an image grid built using HTML unordered list like this:

<ul class="item-list">
  <li>
    <img src="1.jpg" alt="">
    <h2>Item 1</h2>
  </li>
  <li>
    <img src="2.jpg" alt="">
    <h2>Item 2</h2>
  </li>
  <li>
    <img src="3.jpg" alt="">
    <h2>Item 3</h2>
  </li>
  <li>
    <img src="4.jpg" alt="">
    <h2>Item 4</h2>
  </li>
  <li>
    <img src="5.jpg" alt="">
    <h2>Item 5</h2>
  </li>
  <li>
    <img src="6.jpg" alt="">
    <h2>Item 6</h2>
  </li>
  <li>
    <img src="1.jpg" alt="">
    <h2>Item 7</h2>
  </li>
  <li>
    <img src="2.jpg" alt="">
    <h2>Item 8</h2>
  </li>

  ...

</ul>

2. Put both jQuery JavaScript library (slim build) and the jQuery show-more-items.js script at the end of your document.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.slim.min.js"
        integrity="sha256-k2WSCIexGzOj3Euiig+TlR8gA0EmPjuc79OEeY5L45g="
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="javascripts/show-more-items.js"></script>

3. Call the function and done.

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('body').showMoreItems();
});

4. Specify how many list items to show at a time.

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('body').showMoreItems({
    count: 4
  });
});

5. Style the show more button in your CSS file.

.btn {
  font-size: 18px;
  font-weight: bold;
  color: #fff;
  text-decoration: none;
  display: block;
  margin: 0 auto;
  width: 200px;
  height: 60px;
  line-height: 60px;
  background: #458B00;
  text-align: center;
}
