I am playing around with integrating a shopping cart into my own website and the way you create a product or buy button is like this:

<button
    class="add-item"
    data-item-id="2"
    data-item-name="Bacon"
    data-item-price="3.00"
    data-item-weight="20"
    data-item-url="http://mysite.com/products/bacon"
    data-item-description="Some fresh bacon">
    Buy bacon
</button>

This could get tedious if for every item you had to now do this. Can you make these dynamic with PHP? I would more than likely have all products in the database but for simplicity lets say I have:

<?php 
$id = 2;
$item_name = "cheese";
$item_price = 3.00;
$item_weight = 20;
$item_description = "Chedder Cheese";
?>

How could I put that into the button code? I have tried various ways but none of them work so I am obviously doing something wrong.
