How to override /var/www/html/magento2/vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/template/minicart/content.html file in our custom theme?

5 Answers 5


first we have to override web/template files to our magento theme file, in my case content.html


After changes in content.html file, we have to deploy static file using command php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy


You have to delete content.html(i have to change content in this file) file from pub/static/frontend/Magento/buytea/en_US/Magento_Checkout/template/minicart and reload page again.

Changes are applied.

There is another way. We should know that we can override the html template via RequireJS. We don't need to create a custom theme. In your custom module, create a requirejs-config.js:


var config = {
    map: {
        '*': {

A more explain we can read more here.

You can override this by adding this folder to your theme:


In this folder you can create the content.html file. After a change made in this file make sure you flush your browser cache to see the changes.

Although Khoa TruongDinh's answer was really helpful, there are some details missing so here is a full example:

Working minicart example, copy the html template to:


and in themes requirejs-config.js =>

var config = {
    "map": {
        "*": {
            'Magento_Checkout/template/minicart/content.html': 'Magento_Theme/template/minicart/content.html'

See also core bug: https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues/5832


Open file for modifying minicart contents:


Open file for modifying minicart product contents :


After modification, You have to deploy the theme using bin/magento setup:static-content:deploythen it will show.

If modification is not populated then modify tempaltes in below directory for showing runtime changes:

  • you shouldn't modify stuff in pub/static.. it will be overridden by static deploy command anyway...
