Is it possible to render a include a template and pass arguments?


I would like my home page (index.html) to be the latest page (according to date in the front matter). In other words, if the page is the most recent one, going to (= should yield

I know how to render the content of the most recent page:

{{ range first 1 .Data.Pages.ByDate.Reverse }}
{{ .Content }}
{{ end }}

but this just renders the content, without the surrounding elements found in single.html.

I could of course copy single.html into index.html and adapt the content rendering per above, but this means maintaining two otherwise identical pages.

Is there a way to render a page with a specific input (“render single.html with the latest Page as input”) in index.html?
