Hey @tsuj. Thanks for this question! I had the exact same one. Did you ever get this sorted out?


I can call the function but it always alerts the value, I just want to set it to a variable!

Turns out it's actually useless unless you do any tweak on the theme. I have used the ajax API for the same functionality. It's pretty flexible.

Shopify.getCart() returns a promise. So, you can use the following to get data:
Shopify.getCart(function (cart){

//here you have the cart object.




This won't fire up the alert.
