Imports and .common.page
Los Angeles provides two ways to declare common front-matter properties for a set of pages:
Often it will be desirable to have a set of front-matter properties that are
common to every page in a folder. These properties can be declared in the special
When a .page file is loaded, if a .common.page file exists in the same folder it is loaded first and the page being loaded is merged over the settings from .common.page.
eg: suppose you had a .common.page file like so...
--- projectName: "My Project" ---
... then every other .page file in that folder will also inherit the
(unless it is overridden by a new setting in any of the page files).
Besides this automatic importing of the .common.page file you can also explicitly import
other .page files with the
import front-matter property in a page. See here.
The import property can also be used to import the .common.page file from a parent directory:
--- import: ../.common.page ---
