Import variable from one custom module to another

Hi,

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to import variables from one custom module to another? I know you can pass information from one template to another with HubL 'macro' and 'import', you can't however use 'import' in custom modules.

 

Thanks for any input.

 

Steve

Hey @roisinkirby and @Hubmate,

I tried and I was unsuccessful. The custom modules in the new Design Manager do not support the import function. The purpose of the new custom modules is to keep things simple and clean.

If there was an element in one custom module that was relying on a different variable in another custom module, then this kind of goes against the idea of how the new custom modules work. They are meant to be self-contained for easy distribution. This is one of the reasons why it is now restricted.
