eCommerce on Jekyll

'NORTBOTICS' Jekyll eCommerce Theme

This is the Jekyll theme I use for the NORTBOTICS eCommerce site. Originally based off of 'Jekyll Incorporated', it has been highly customized and edited. I found that no other Jekyll users had tried to do eCommerce - so ended up figuring much of it out on my own. It's not anything special, just a lot of common sense I think. I have much more to do, but I think this is a good start - so why not opensource it and let others use it.

How do you do cart management on a static site?

We use FoxyCart. So far so good.
