wp_enqueue_script order – external vs inline js

I have a few scripts loading with my theme:

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

    // doing something using script.js
    <script type="text/javascript"> 
       script-var: <?php echo get_option('script1-var');?>
    </script>

They work well, but when I do wp_enqueue_script instead of <script src=""> the script is loading AFTER in-line js content, so:

     // enqueuing script.js
     wp_enqueue_script('script-js', get_template_directory_uri() ."/scripts/script.js");       

     // doing something using script.js
     <script type="text/javascript"> 
        script-var: <?php echo get_option('script1-var');?>
     </script>

Gives:

  <script type="text/javascript"> 
       script-var: <?php echo get_option('script1-var');?>
  </script>

   <!-- EVERYTHING ABOVE THIS LINE IS USELESS SINCE THE SCRIPT LOADS AFTER, NOT BEFORE, IT -->
  <script type='text/javascript' src='http://address/scripts/script.js?ver=3.2.1'></script>

How to avoid that? I know I could put my inline scripts into different files and enqueue them as well, but this is absolutely pointless since there is a lot of PHP functions in them.

When you enqueue scripts, they get output with wp_head(), so if you want inline scripts after, put them after wp_head().

However, if you’re putting scripts inline just to add some php, a better route would be to enqueue it and use wp_localize_script to set whatever js vars you need from php.
