Hugo templates vs helm charts

hi there,

as probably has been discussed here several times, there seem to be a problem in mixing partials with shortcodes. If you try to do so, you get error messages like this:
parse failed: template: partials/header.html:34: unexpected “<” in command.
(Similar behaviour when you try to use the {{% %}}-syntax for shortcodes).

We are also using helm charts to configure our kubernetis setups. helm charts as hugo both are based on go-template language (at least I saw quite a few similarities between those two kinds of files).
And in helm-charts there it seems to be possible to create reusable data to be used in several places of a kubernetes configuration by
{{ define “myFunction” . }}

{{ end }}
We have a similar construct with blocks in hugo… Is there a way to create reusable, proprietery functions to share template code between shortcodes and/or partials?

Thanx for your help.

Create a partial to use in templates (including other partials).
Call the partial from a shortcode to use within content; you are effectively “wrapping” the partial.


Works for me :smile: How awsome is that! Thanx a lot.
