PHP $_GET in JavaScript

This other day I encountered a situation where I needed to pass in variables to a javascript. I had built the javascript in a PHP file before, and could easily use PHP to inject the variables like this:

var name = "<?php echo $name ?>"

But when I wanted to separate the javascript from PHP I could not access the PHP variables anymore, the solution was to do it like this:

<script src=”my_script.js?name=<?php echo $name ?>” ></script >

and then access the variable from the script by $

The code on jsfiddle:
