I have a JS file that is loaded through require-js.config. I need to get access to a store->configurations value inside my JS file.

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish that?

If we take a look at onepage phtml template, we can see how to set and get a global config Js variable.


        window.checkoutConfig = <?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo \Zend_Json::encode($block->getCheckoutConfig()); ?>;
        // Create aliases for customer.js model from customer module
        window.isCustomerLoggedIn = window.checkoutConfig.isCustomerLoggedIn;
        window.customerData = window.checkoutConfig.customerData;

We can do the same way by setting a global Js variable.

For example, in your template:

   window.valuesConfig = '<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $block->getValuesConfig(); ?>'

And then, in your custom js, you can get:

getValues: function() {
                return window.valuesConfig;

Remember add the method in your block, for example:

public function getValuesConfig()
        return $this->_scopeConfig->getValue('get/value/config');

    Technically, yes this is an answer to my question. I'll accept it as the answer. But I was looking for something more elegant than just dumping out global variables for the world to see onto the page. Aug 7, 2016 at 23:52
  • As far as I know, Magento 2 also use local storage feature. We can also add the config to local storage. Aug 8, 2016 at 14:13
