Woocommerce mini cart ajax update

Here’s the quick and dirty.

add_filter('woocommerce_add_to_cart_fragments', 'your_own_add_to_cart_fragment');

function your_own_add_to_cart_fragment( $fragments ) {
	global $woocommerce;
        //Update basket counter
	<div class="basket-counter"><?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_contents_count(); ?></div>
	$fragments['.basket-counter'] = ob_get_clean();
	return $fragments;

So what’s happening here?

Woocomerce will find the Fragment node and replace it with the output buffer.

That means we can update any element using the add_to_cart button.

Yes any..

Want to replace the logo with the total amount of items in the basket? No problem

function your_own_add_to_cart_fragment( $fragments ) {
	global $woocommerce;
        //Replace header logo with cart contents count
	<div class="header__logo"><?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_contents_count(); ?></div>
        //Element to be replaced
	$fragments['.header__logo'] = ob_get_clean();
	return $fragments;

To review

Get Woocommerce object

global $woocommerce;	

Start output buffer


New content to display on add to cart

<?php echo $my_new_content; ?>
//Remember the Fragment node is replaced so you need to wrap content in html element. 

Note: $fragment Key is used to find node to be replaced. So you could do something like:

    $fragments['.basket-counter'] = ob_get_contents();
    $fragments['.header__logo > strong, .basket-counter'] = ob_get_contents();
