Using "PHP" inside front end scripts

Thank you both for your quick reply.

Are you aware of any online resources describing this methodology? I tried searching for something like "using php cached variables in script", but was unsuccessful.

This is how I managed to parse cached array ($survey->answers) to js array (var answers) in my view:

PHP Code:

   var JSON_array = <?= $js_answers ?>;
   var answers = [];

   for (var answer in JSON_array) {
       if (JSON_array.hasOwnProperty(answer)) {

But based on what you wrote, I would image this is not the most effective/scalable approach.
