Make PHP data available in javascript files for Wordpress using wp_localize_script();

[http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_localize_script] [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6808221/php-within-js-file-wordpress]

Usage

<?php wp_localize_script( $handle, $name, $data ); ?> 
  1. Register the script
  2. Create variables in a (preferably associative) array
  3. Localize the script (handle-of-registered-script-in-step-1,object-name-to-be-used-in-the-JS,the-array-that-contains-the-data-variables)
  4. Enqueue the registered script in step 1
  5. Use the object's properties in your JS

Example

functions.php or
plugins/your_plugin.php

<?php
// Register the script first.
wp_register_script( 'discount_vars', get_template_directory_uri() . 'js/scripts.js' );

// Localize the script with our data that we want to use
$options = get_option( 'hub_settings' );
$discount = array('discount1'=> $options['hub_text_field_0'],'discount_2'=> $options['hub_text_field_1'],'discount_3'=> $options['hub_text_field_2'],'discount_4'=> $options['hub_text_field_3']);
wp_localize_script( 'discount_vars', 'discount', $discount );

// The script can be enqueued now or later.
wp_enqueue_script( 'discount_vars' );
?>

scripts.js

    alert(discount.discount1); // Will output the 1st textfield option saved in the WP admin custom options page
