wp enqueue inline script due to dependancies

Is there a way to use wp_enqueue_script() for inline scripts?

I’m doing this because my inline script depends on another script and i would like the flexibility of inserting it after it’s loaded.

Also, It’s an inline script because i’m passing php variables into the javascript (like theme path, etc)

Thanks in advance.


Well, you have wp_localize_script(), but that’s only for passing data.

Otherwise, you can do this:

function print_my_inline_script() {
  if ( wp_script_is( 'some-script-handle', 'done' ) ) {
<script type="text/javascript">
// js code goes here
add_action( 'wp_footer', 'print_my_inline_script' );

The idea is that you shouldn’t rely on your inline script being printed exactly after the script it depends on, but later.
