As Fermin said, a variable in the global scope should be accessible to all scripts loaded after it is declared. You could also use a property of window or (in the global scope) this to get the same effect.

// first.js
var colorCodes = {

  back  : "#fff",
  front : "#888",
  side  : "#369"


... in another file ...

// second.js
alert (colorCodes.back); // alerts `#fff`

... in your html file ...

<script type="text/javascript" src="first.js"></script> 
<script type="text/javascript" src="second.js"></script>
