Cart item quantity updates requires clicking Update Cart (PHP Cart)

The GraphQL cart automatically applied quantity updates using API requests.
The PHP Cart on the other hand chooses a more conservative UI experience out of the box, and requires visitors to click the "Update Shopping Cart" button after making changes.

Changing this behavior requires customizing the template
Magento_Checkout/templates/php-cart/item/configure/updatecart.phtml.

By adding the following event listener to the input field, the form will be submitted automatically two seconds after a visitor changes the quantity:

x-on:change.debounce.2000ms="$event.target.form && $event.target.form.dispatchEvent(new Event('submit'));"

Here is the full input field code for reference:

<input id="cart-<?= $escaper->escapeHtmlAttr($item->getId()) ?>-qty"
       name="cart[<?= $escaper->escapeHtmlAttr($item->getId()) ?>][qty]"
       value="<?= $escaper->escapeHtmlAttr($block->getQty()) ?>"
       type="number"
       size="4"
       step="any"
       title="<?= $escaper->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Qty')) ?>"
       class="qty form-input px-2 py-2 w-20 text-center"
       required="required"
       min="0"
       @change.debounce.2000ms="$event.target.form && $event.target.form.dispatchEvent(new Event('submit'));"
       data-role="cart-item-qty"/>

Using a dispatchEvent on the form makes sure that any JavaScript form submission events are being triggered.
In this case, it will trigger the hyva.postCart event that reloads the cart data without a full page request.

The alternative will not dispatch the submit event, and thus will cause a full page reload and not an Ajax request to be used.

x-on:change.debounce.2000ms="$event.target.form.submit()"
