error calling fingerprint: <nil> is not a Resource

@bep How was this solved? I am running into a very similar issue on Cactus theme

executing "partials/head.html" at <toCSS>: error calling toCSS: type <nil> not supported in Resource transformations

You need to do a nil check in the templates. The thing is, resource.Get "someresource.css" returns nil if not found.

We could probably improve the error message, but you need to do something ala:

{ { $scss := resource.Get "foo.scss" }}

{{ if $scss }}
// call toSCSS
{{ end }}
