I had this piece of code in a module developed for some previous version of Drupal 8.

protected function getOutput() {
    $content = $this->buildContent();
    $page = array(
      '#theme' => 'html',
      '#page_object' => new Html(render($content)),
    $rendered_page = render($page);
    return $rendered_page;

Now, in the present beta release, it shows this error:

Fatal error: Class 'Drupal\hardcopy\Plugin\Html' not found in C:\xampp\htdocs\drupalbeta7\modules\custom\hardcopy\src\Plugin\HardcopyFormatBase.php on line 175

Can someone tell me how to pass the HTML of the whole page in the response object?

As D8 uses Symfony responses it's as simple as:

use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response;


$response = new Response(
  'Your HTML content here',
  array('content-type' => 'text/html')

return $response;

See the docs for more information.

  • I think this will be useful to me(will be trying). Can help me with this I have generated an array containing information related to a node by using this: ($content = $this->entityManager()->getViewBuilder($entity->getEntityTypeId())->view($entity, 'copy');). But I want to get rid of comment section present in the array. Any idea how to do so? Feeling bad I can't even upvote since I am novice over here Commented Apr 21, 2015 at 13:30

    The comment output can be controlled per view mode/display. You can add your view mode and display configuration to your module and then hide the comment field there.
