Theme: Basic 8.x-1.x-dev

I am trying to clear theme data after any change is done to twig files. I see that rebuildThemeData is here: https://goo.gl/EA2YL4

Currently have this within my .theme file.



Does anyone have this sort of implementation complete and working for an example? https://www.drupal.org/node/2608470

There are some defaults that ship with D8 in your sites/default configuration files that you can configure during development.

The application portion:

Open development.services.yml in the sites folder 
and add the following block (to disable twig cache)
            debug : true
            auto_reload: true
            cache: false

There is more information on this Drupal.org node.

  • Thanks Alex, Im actually attempting to do this within the theme in order to make it simpler for other themers to just check a box in the theme settings. I will modify my question
