Currently I'm doing this:

const PATHS = {
  srcFilesGlob: path.resolve(__dirname, "src/**/*"),
  pagesGlob: path.resolve(__dirname, "src/pages/**/*.njk"),
  partialsGlob: path.resolve(__dirname, "src/pages/**/**(.mjml).partial.njk"),

  rootDir: path.resolve(__dirname, "src"),
  componentsDir: path.resolve(__dirname, "src/components"),
  fontsDir: path.resolve(__dirname, "src/fonts"),
  layoutsDir: path.resolve(__dirname, "src/layouts"),
  pagesDir: path.resolve(__dirname, "src/pages"),
  stylesDir: path.resolve(__dirname, "src/styles"),

  buildDir: path.resolve(__dirname, "__build__"),
  outputDir: path.resolve(__dirname, "dist"),

return gulp
    .src([`${PATHS.pagesGlob}`, `!${PATHS.partialsGlob}`])
        data: PATHS,
        path: [
        envOptions: {
          noCache: true,
          tags: {
            blockStart: "<%",
            blockEnd: "%>",
            variableStart: "<$",
            variableEnd: "$>",
            commentStart: "<#",
            commentEnd: "#>",

It compiles well the files in pagesGlob but also excludes partialsGlob in order to have only pages as final files, not partials, in buildDir.

In pages, I can do import or include of partials in nunjucks, it works well.

However, as partialsGlob is exclude, data: PATHS, isn't given to those files, which means I can't use variables like componentsDir.

Do you have any idea to make it work?

Thank you.

I put 'em into env.addGlobal instead of data!


        manageEnv: (env) => {
          env.addGlobal("componentsDir", PATHS.componentsDir)
          env.addGlobal("layoutsDir", PATHS.layoutsDir)
          env.addGlobal("pagesDir", PATHS.pagesDir)
          env.addGlobal("stylesDir", PATHS.stylesDir)
