Node.js Question

How do I use backend variable in ejs script section?

<!-- begin snippet: js hide: false console: true babel: false -->

// initialize the map
var map ='map').setView([25.037393872113785, 121.56372070312499], 12);
// load a tile layer
var baseLayer = L.tileLayer('http://{s}{z}/{x}/{y}.png',
attribution: '&copy; <a href="">OpenStreetMap</a>',
maxZoom: 17

var Data =
var cfg = {
"radius": 0.03,
"maxOpacity": 0.5,
"scaleRadius": true,
"useLocalExtrema": true,
latField: 'lat',
lngField: 'lng',
valueField: 'count'

var heatmapLayer = new HeatmapOverlay(cfg).addTo(map);


//javascript version = 1.7
var express = require('express');
var router = express.Router();
var r = require('rethinkdb');
var rethinkdbHost = "";
var connection = null;
var waterfall = require('async-waterfall');

r.connect( {host: rethinkdbHost, port: 28015}, function(err, conn) {
if (err) throw err;
connection = conn;
r.db('AQI_inference').table('pm25_one_week')).run(connection, function(err, cursor) {
if (err) throw err;
cursor.toArray(function(err, result) {
if (err) throw err;
var cor = result.geometry.coordinates;
var t =;
var pm25 =;
console.log(cor, t, pm25);
router.get('/', function(req, res, next) {
res.render('mapTest', {cor: cor,time: t, pm25: pm25});

I just learned nodejs express for a week

I want to make a map with air quality mark on it and got some problem now,

I get data from rethinkDB and I can only access the data with <% =%>

How do I use the variable cor, time and pm25 in frontend script section?

I want to use cor in 'var Data' in my js code.

is there any simple way to do this?

please help me

Answer Source

use some element for storing data elements.

<div id="script" data-time="<%= time %>" data-cor="<%= cor %>"></div>

In you script tag you can access using

var time = document.getElementById("script").getAttribute('data-time');

similarly you can use other variables.
