Javascript Question

How to pass variables to a method inside a fuction JavaScript

My code looks like this:

var getData = function(section, sort) {
var url = 'https://api.imgur.com/3/gallery/+' section '+/+' sort '+/1'
req.get({
url: url,
method: 'GET',
headers: {
'Authorization': 'Client-Id xxxxxxxxxxxxx'
}
}, function(e, r, body) {
var metadata = JSON.parse(body);
console.log(metadata.data.length);
})
};
getData('hot', 'viral');


I'm sorry for the last part of the code, for some reason I couldn't make it better here.

My problem is that I wan't to firstly ask for search parameters(section, sort) and then use them in my url inside req.get method. Compiler gives me some:

var url = 'https://api.imgur.com/3/gallery/+'section'+/+'sort'+/1';
SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier

I'm new to Node and JavaScript, please don't blame me. Thank You in advance!

Answer

Replace

var url = 'https://api.imgur.com/3/gallery/+' section '+/+' sort '+/1'

with

var url = 'https://api.imgur.com/3/gallery/' + section + '/' + sort + '/1';
