$config->jsConfig() method

Set or retrieve a config value exclusive to Javascript (ProcessWire.config)

Values are set to the Javascript variable ProcessWire.config[key].

Unlike onfig->js(), values get or set are exclusive to JS config only.

Values set with this method can be retrieved via $config->js() or $config->jsConfig(), but they cannot be retrieved from $config->['key'] or $config->get('key').

If setting a new property for the JS config it is recommended that you use this method rather than $config->js() in ProcessWire 3.0.173+. If backwards compatibility is needed then you should still use $config->js().

  1. Specify a $key and $value to set a JS config value.

  2. Specify only a $key and omit the $value in order to retrieve an existing set value.

  3. Specify no params to retrieve in array of all existing set values.

Available since version 3.0.173.


// Set a property from PHP
$config->jsConfig('mySettings', [
  'foo' => 'bar',
  'bar' => 123,

// Get a property (from PHP)
$mySettings = $config->jsConfig('mySettings');
// Get a property (from Javascript):
var mySettings = ProcessWire.config.mySettings;


// basic usage
$mixed = $config->jsConfig();

// usage with all arguments
$mixed = $config->jsConfig(string $key = null, $value = null);

Name of property to get or set or omit to return all data

value (optional)mixed, null

Specify value to set or omit (null) to get

Return value
