The LET statement binds the result of an expression to a variable. There is no concept in Xpand to define variables, and usually it is not needed.|
Anyway, to come around this you could use the elementprops extensions from stdlib.
You should always ask yourself: Do I really need this? I do not know your usecase, but it is likely that you could come around your issue with a smarter use of extension functions for your template. I have programmed so many templates, and don't have a real need for local variables in 99%. Also I avoid to use LET in favor of extension functions whenever applicable.
