Use this template tag to get a paginator showing the first and last two pages w/ adjacent pages using ellipsis.

The page parameter is a page of a Paginator (typically the first but you can use whichever you want).

In case of 50 pages, while being on the 40th, it'll give you the following iterable of ints (with settings.PAGINATOR_ADJACENT_PAGES = 2):

(1, 2,    38, 39, 40, 41, 42,    49, 50)

You get the idea.
