I'm editing app\design\frontend\Vendor\theme\Magento_Checkout\templates\cart\item\default.phtml

This is what I'm trying to achieve:

Product color and size

For configurable product, it shows color and size by default, but they doesn't show up for simple product. The .phtml which I'm editing already have $product:

$product = $_item->getProduct();

I tried this:

<br>data :<?php print_r($product->getData())?>
<br>color :<?php var_dump($product->getColor())?>
<br>options :<?php var_dump($product->getOptions())?>

But it doesnt seem to have color or size value in it. Here's the output:

First you have to create helper class in your module

namespace Vendor\Module\Helper;
class Data extends \Magento\Framework\App\Helper\AbstractHelper 
     public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Helper\Context $context,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Attribute\Repository $productAttributeRepository,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_ProductAttributeRepository = $productAttributeRepository;
    public function getsize()
        $size = $this->_ProductAttributeRepository->get('size')->getOptions();
        return $size;

public function getcolor()
        $color = $this->_ProductAttributeRepository->get('color')->getOptions();
        return $color;


Then You can use this function in phtml file by calling helper function

$size = $helper->getsize();
$color = $helper->getcolor();
  • Thanks, but how do I use this helper if I want to get color and size value from $product variable? – zekkai May 31 '17 at 6:02
