Low Stock Indikator on Product Page

I would like to display a message when a variant is low on stock. 

I've found and modified this part of code:

{% assign stock = 0 %}            
              {% for variant in product.variants %}
              {%capture stock %}
              {{ stock | plus:variant.inventory_quantity }}
              {% endcapture %}
              {% endfor %}
              
              {%assign stock = stock | times:1%}

			  {% if stock < 3 and stock > 0 %}
        <span class="label inventory"; style= "color: red";><h4>&#10071; Only <b> {{stock}}</b> left!</h4></span>
			  {% endif %}

However, this doesn't work with variants. It always shows. 

Then I've done this, which seemed logical to me, but didn't work either. I know some basics but I'm stuck here. 

 {% if variant.inventory_quantity < 3 and variant.inventory_quantity > 0 %}
        <span class="label inventory"; style= "color: red";><h4>&#10071; Only <b> {{stock}}</b> left!</h4></span>
			  {% endif %}

 

I guess the issue is that if the customer changes the variant, the page doesn't reload. 

 

Any solutions? Thanks in advance!

Please try this code 

 {% if product.available %}
     
        {% assign how_many_in_stock = 0 %}
        {% for variant in product.variants %}
          {% if variant.available %}
              {% assign how_many_in_stock = how_many_in_stock | plus: variant.inventory_quantity %}
          {% endif %}
        {% endfor %}
        {% if how_many_in_stock < 15 %}
        <p class="low-stock-notification">Hurry, low stock!</p> 
        {% endif %}
      
      {% endif %}

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply! 

 

Unfortunate, this hasn't worked. It still shows the "Low Stock" Notification on all variants

 

Eg. 

https://5z52je85ohj9asnk-39359021187.shopifypreview.com

Here there is only stock in S. All others are sold out. It still shows on every variant

To get this working with variant selection is an advanced customization as the solution can vary wildly between themes.
