I was looking at various Drupal core twig templates to get an idea of how menus are rendered and I came across this line in menu--toolbar.html.twig:

{{ link(item.title, item.url) }}

Is link a macro? If so, where is it defined? It doesn't appear to be a feature of twig. I couldn't find it by searching the D8 codebase.


It's a Twig_SimpleFunction, rather than a macro. It's registered with Twig in \Drupal\Core\Template\TwigExtension::getFunctions.

Its callback method is \Drupal\Core\Template\TwigExtension::getLink .
