How can we improve WooCommerce?

Shopping Cart in Header

Would love to have the option to display a shopping cart in the header like many Ecommerce sites feature.

A simple cart icon + information about the number of items & price would be ideal.

Cheers,
James

        I'm building this plugin and the basic version is almost finished. I plan on having a free and paid version. Shoot me an email for more info (jeremiah.prummer@yahoo.com). I'll post the link when the free version is complete (hopefully this weekend).

        I know this isn't ideal for everyone, but adding this functionality is quite simple (if you're a developer, even a beginner).

        It might be easier to find a theme with a widget somewhere in the header, and add the widget to that are that way.

        Just a suggestion while this is being considered.

        I totally agree that this is would be a great functionality.
        To be honest I don't like the footer cart. It takes up to much space on the page.
        The cart widget becomes to big when you've added say 5 items to the cart.

        Would be great with a admin setting that lets you decide the appearance of added cart items to the sidebar widget.
