    Returns the <script> element whose script is currently being processed.


    var curScriptElement = document.currentScript;


    This example checks to see if the script is being executed asynchronously:

    if (document.currentScript.async) {
      console.log("Executing asynchronously");
    } else {
      console.log("Executing synchronously");

    It's important to note that this will not reference the <script> element if the code in the script is being called as a callback or event handler; it will only reference the element while it's initially being processed.
