I'm trying to create a preprocess function to my custom view. Template is called as expected but my preprocess is called at beginning of html and left my entire page blank.

If I change to default template (views_view_unformatted.html.twig) the execution of theme_preprocess_views_view_unformatted() works as expected, right on my view is. But if change to views_view__custom.html.twig the execution of theme_preprocess_views_view__custom() occur at beginning of html!

This is the normal behavior? Or something is wrong? I just want to create my custom view template and create a preprocess function for it.


In Drupal 8 it is possible to have preprocess functions for the theme suggestions.

So let's say if your template for the View is views-view--test-view--block-1.html.twig, you would have following preprocess functions:

  • THEMENAME_preprocess_views_view__test_view__block_1
  • THEMENAME_preprocess_views_view__test_view
  • THEMENAME_preprocess_views_view
