Passing variables from a Divi module’s PHP code to React JSX can be a bit tricky, but with the right approach, it can be done relatively easily. In this article, we’ll go over the steps needed to pass a variable from PHP to JSX in a Divi module.
First, let’s start with the PHP side of things. In the Divi module’s PHP code, we need to define the variable that we want to pass to JSX. This can be done using the global variable
$module, which is automatically available in all Divi module files. For example, let’s say we have a variable called
$my_variable that we want to pass to JSX. We can define it in the module’s PHP code like this:
$module->my_variable = "Hello World!";
Now that we have defined the variable in PHP, we need to make it available to the JSX code. To do this, we need to use the
wp_localize_script( 'module-js', 'module_data', array( 'my_variable' => $module->my_variable, ) );
This will make the variable
Next, we need to use the passed variable in our JSX code. To do this, we first need to import the
module_data object in our JSX file.
import module_data from 'module_data';
Once we have imported the object, we can access the variable using the
module_data.my_variable notation. For example, to display the value of the variable in a JSX element, we can use it like this:
And that’s it! With these steps, we have successfully passed a variable from PHP to JSX in a Divi module.
It’s worth noting that when working with a Divi module, it’s important to make sure that the PHP and JSX code are properly organized and that all necessary scripts are properly enqueued.
Also, you can pass multiple variables in the same way, just add more key-value pairs to the array passed to the
In conclusion, passing variables from PHP to JSX in a Divi module can be a bit tricky, but with the right approach, it can be done relatively easily. By using the
$module global variable in PHP, the
wp_localize_script function, and the
