Laravel Facade and Service Provider for Lenius\Basket


To use, simply install the package via Composer and then add the following to your app/config/app.php to the service providers array:


You should then be good to go and be able to access the basket using the following static interface:

//Format array of required info for item to be added to basket...
$items = array(
    'id' => 1,
    'name' => 'Dog',
    'price' => 120.00,
    'quantity' => 1,
    'weight' => 200

//Make the insert...

Setting the tax rate for an item

Another key you can pass to your insert method is ‘tax’. This is a percentage which you would like to be added onto the price of the item.

In the below example we will use 25% for the tax rate.

    'id'       => 'mouseid',
    'name'     => 'Mouse',
    'price'    => 100,
    'quantity' => 1,
    'tax'      => 25,
    'weight' => 200
