WooCommerce - Ajax Add To Cart and Update Total

I'm working on a website that allows users to add products to cart from the home page. I've followed a few resources online from their website and other SO questions which allows me to add products to the cart via Ajax but the cart total will not update without a page reload.

WooCommerce's documentation is where the

cpp_header_add_to_cart_fragment
function came from and it doesn't seem to work at all. Originally I was using
add_to_cart_fragments
but I found out that was deprecated and I should be using
woocommerce_add_to_cart_fragments
but that change doesn't help either.

The more I read the code... I'm noticing that the fragments are begin returned from the ajax call so I'm beginning to think I need to replace the html that is showing the cart total with what is returned from the javascript?

page_home.php

<!-- Cart link to be updated when products are added -->
<a class="cart-contents" href="<?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_url(); ?>" title="<?php _e( 'View your shopping cart' ); ?>">
<?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_total(); ?>
</a>


functions.php

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'cpp_enqueue_scripts');
function cpp_enqueue_scripts() {
/* Other enqueue/registers */
wp_register_script('diy_kits', get_template_directory_uri().'/js/diy_kit.js');
wp_enqueue_script('diy_kits');
wp_localize_script(
'diy_kits',
'cpp_ajax',
array(
'ajaxurl' => admin_url('admin-ajax.php'),
'diy_product_nonce' => wp_create_nonce('diy_product_nonce')
)
);
}

add_action('wp_ajax_nopriv_cpp_ajax-submit', 'cpp_ajax_submit');
add_action('wp_ajax_cpp_ajax-submit', 'cpp_ajax_submit');
function cpp_ajax_submit() {
global $woocommerce;

$nonce = $_POST['nonce'];
if(!wp_verify_nonce($nonce, 'diy_product_nonce')) {
wp_die('Busted!');
}

// Add product to cart... this works
$product_id = $_POST['product_id'];
if( $woocommerce->cart->add_to_cart( $product_id ) ) {
$data = apply_filters('woocommerce_add_to_cart_fragments', array());
do_action('woocommerce_ajax_added_to_cart', $product_id);
} else {
$data = array( 'success' => false, 'product_id' => $product_id );
}
$response = json_encode($data);
header("Content-Type: application/json");
echo $response;
exit;
}


cpp_header_add_to_cart_fragment

// CART UPDATE AJAX this doesn't work
add_filter('woocommerce_add_to_cart_fragments', 'cpp_header_add_to_cart_fragment');
function cpp_header_add_to_cart_fragment( $fragments ) {
global $woocommerce;
ob_start(); ?>
<a class="cart-contents" href="<?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_url(); ?>" title="<?php _e( 'View your shopping cart' ); ?>">
<?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_total(); ?>
</a>

<?php
$fragments['a.cart-contents'] = ob_get_clean();
return $fragments;
}


diy_kits.js

// setup and other stuff...
links.click(function(e) {
/* unrelated stuff */
jQuery.post(
cpp_ajax.ajaxurl,
{
action : 'cpp_ajax-submit',
nonce : cpp_ajax.diy_product_nonce,
product_id : jQuery(this).attr('data-product-id')
},
function(response) {
console.log(response);
}
);
});

Answer

In case someone happens upon this... woocommerce_add_to_cart_fragments was returning the new html string in the $fragments array and since I was calling it in my ajax function that was being turned into a json object. So in my diy_kit.js in the success part of the jquery function, I just had to use that string to update the cart total. I'll paste the edits below:

page_home.php

<div id="cart_container">
    <a class="cart-contents" href="<?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_url(); ?>" title="<?php _e( 'View your shopping cart' ); ?>">
        <?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_total(); ?>
    </a> 
</div>

diy_kit.js

/*inside jQuery.post() function */
function(response) {
    jQuery('#cart_container').html(response['a.cart-contents']);
}
