    Hi all,

    Previously I have imported partials in my styles.scss – something like this

    But in gulpfile.js has the line:

    return gulp.src(‘app/sass/**/*.scss’) // Gets all files ending with .scss in app/scss and children dirs

    Does this mean that there is no need to import sass partials in styles.scss?



    No, you still need to import the partials or at least that’s what you probably want.

    The Gulp-Task will transform all *.scss-files, but ignore files starting with “_”. The reason behind this is, that you don’t want all your scss-files to be transformed alone (and therefore create the same amount of css-files), but one (or maybe two) css-file, which contain everything.

    Furthermore you’ve probably structured your scss over different files (mixins, variables being used in different files, etc.) and without your @importstatements they won’t know anything of each other.

    tldr: no, you still need to import your partials.


    @ MattDiMu ok got it thanks. One more thing please – if my styles.scss specifies a file such as @import “variables/colors”; it will import ok but if I try to use wildcards such as @import “variables/**/*.scss”; I get a “File to import not found or unreadable” error – details here – any ideas please where the problem is?
