I'm familiar with the Drupal 8 theming API,as well as all of the theme template suggestions available when Twig debug is enabled. I have created content type named (machine name) events .For overriding node.html.twig I have made node--events.html.twig . In this (node--events.html.twig) file I am trying to get individual values like below: {{content.body}} But it returns null . I have also tried {{ node.field_machine_name.value }} but It is not working for all the fields .

  • If {{ content.body }} not works, then this field is not in the display mode. If .value on a node field doesn't work, the field has no value property. See md-systems.ch/de/blog/techblog/2017/02/20/…

  • If typing {{ content.field_machine_name }} does not work in a basic node template, something else is wrong and there is not enough information here.

In my node twig template file I have this which works for me:

{{ content.field_name|field_label }}
{{ content.field_name|field_value }}

This works if the twig_field_value module is enabled.

  • You'll need to enable this module twig_field_value if you want field_label and field_value filter to work.

    Good point, twig_field_value must be enabled - I forgot about that. Try using {{ dump(content) }} to see what fields are available in the content object. If it's not working it could be a config problem? Jul 7, 2017 at 13:13
  • {{ dump(content) }} renders nothing at all and a white page is returned…

  • sounds like content is undefined in your case. Do you have display php errors enabled? Jun 14, 2018 at 15:04
