Gulp gulp-less to include component sub-folders

My less folders contain sub folders (with more on the way). It looks like so...

Assets
|- js
|- less
|- students
|- students.less // ignores
|- courses
|- courses.less // ignores
|- teachers
|- teachers.less // ignores
main.less // gets successfully


Right now my gulpfile.js can find main.less just fine. But how can I go into the sub directories (students, courses, teachers) and grab their respective
.less
files to gulp-less + minify?

This is what I have:

gulp.task('less', function () {
gulp.src('assets/less/*.less')
.pipe(plumber())
.pipe(less())
.pipe(cssmin())
.pipe(rename({
suffix: '.min'
}))
.pipe(gulp.dest('assets/css/'))
});

Answer

You can use **/*.less to match all subdirectories.

gulp.task('less', function () {
  gulp.src('assets/less/**/*.less')
    .pipe(plumber())
    .pipe(less())
    .pipe(cssmin())
    .pipe(rename({
      suffix: '.min'
    }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('assets/css/'))
});
