I use paragraphs with my content type. I need to show weight (order) value of each paragraph in my twig template. I can change weight with select box when I edit the node, but I can't figure out how to get it in twig.

function ws_preprocess_paragraph(&$variables) 
    $par = $variables['paragraph'];
    $myweight = $par->weight;

Please help)

  • I don't know what you want to do, but you find the deltas in the field, not the referenced paragraphs. – 4k4 May 15 '17 at 8:54
  • The aim of all this to show order number of paragraphs 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 in paragraph twig template. May be some other way? – 4eveZIP May 15 '17 at 8:55

and then again in every item of a field:

  • Thanks for your answer. It's not working. $variables['content'] doesn't have #weigth key and $par->getDisplayOptions('view') displays error Call to undefined method Drupal\paragraphs\Entity\Paragraph::getDisplayOptions() – 4eveZIP May 15 '17 at 8:50
  • Sorry .. answered to quick and without verification of the code ;) Updated! – rémy May 15 '17 at 9:11
