Using follow widget

Anywhere in your code you can use follow widget as follows:


You need to use Follows widget header in your page:
```use elephantsGroup\follow\components\Follows;```

Follow widget parameters
---

- item (integer): to separate follows between different items.
```<?= Follows::widget(['item' => 1]) ?>```
```<?= Follows::widget(['item' => $model->id]) ?>```

default value for item is 0
- service (integer): to separate follows between various item types.
```<?= Folloes::widget(['service' => 1, 'item' => $model->id]) ?>```

for example you can use different values for different modules in your app, and then use follow widget separately in modules.
default value for service is 0
- color (string): color of unfollowed icon heart, default 'black'
```<?= Follows::widget(['service' => 1, ''item' => $model->id, 'color' => 'yellow']) ?>```

```<?= Follows::widget([
    'service' => 1,
    'item' => $model->id,
    'color' => 'yellow',
    'view_file' => Yii::getAlias('@frontend') . '/views/follow/widget.php'
]) ?>```

you can use these variables in your customized view:
* service
* item
* color
* is_follow
