Disable Cart Fragments by Optimocha

Description

Disable Cart Fragments is a lightweight plugin which effectively speeds up your WooCommerce website by disabling the cart fragments script. It also enqueues the script back when the cart is not empty anymore; so it only works while the cart is empty.

Why is disabling cart fragments important?

WooCommerce makes an AJAX request to check your cart and update your cart totals in wherever your theme shows cart contents (like the header menu). This AJAX call is made to override caching plugins, which is good, but it generally takes time.

How does Disable Cart Fragments solve the issue?

With our plugin, you have the best of both worlds: You keep using the caching plugin and you still get to update the cart totals when the cart is not empty. This check is made via WooCommerce cart cookies, so it still employs JavaScript but doesn’t rely on slow AJAX requests. The check is made instantly, whether you’re using a caching plugin or not. How cool is that?

Works as expected, lets you get rid off slow cart fragments ajax requests for all the visitors without items in cart.

Works as advertised so now we can keep the cart icon in the nav menu but stop WooCommerce from re-loading the page immediately after it just loaded (e.g. as seen with [yoururl.tld/?wc-ajax=get_refreshed_fragments]). Noticeable speed boost!
