How can I pass information from python to my new custom view?

I am creating a custom view that pulls data out of a configuration file (right now databases from DB Connect configuration) and allows me to display a drop down, allowing the user to determine what database to pull information from for the app.

All the documentation on the SDK only shows using Python to create the django binding, but nothing really goes into how (if possible) you can pass additional information from the python to the javascript.

Is this at all possible?
