Project description

Add panel with summary information to template (probably, you want to include this panel in every page):

In order to basket javascript works, you have to add jQuery and basket.js to all pages with order buttons:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ STATIC_URL }}basket/js/basket.js"></script>

Finally, at the item page

{% add_basket_button object 'button_text' 'added_text' 'already_in_text' 'template_name' %}

Where object is avaiable to order, 'button_text' is the text printed on the add button, 'added_text' is the text that appears near the add button, and 'already_in_text' is the text placed above the add button when page loaded. Unrequired 'template_name' is the path to rendered template.
