I have a content type, basic, where i have added a Paragraph field field_pr that has two fields: field_text, field_color. I have a twig template node--basic--full.html.twig where I want to print the value of the paragraph field node.field_pr.

node.field_pr can have between one and ten paragraph values.

When I print the array for content.field_pr, I get a huge array. However, I only want the values from the field_pr.field_text and field_pr.field_color. How would I be able to do this from the node twig template?

I have tried the following but cannot seem to access the values. What am I missing?

{% for field in content.field_pr %}
   {{ field[loop.index0].entity.field_text.value }}
   {{ field[loop.index0].entity.field_color.value }}
{% endfor %}

{% for field in content.field_pr %}
   {{ field[loop.index0]['#paragraph'].field_text.value }}
   {{ field[loop.index0]['#paragraph'].field_color.value }}
{% endfor %}

Here is an image of the array that is printed for the node.field_pr field. array that is printed for the node.field_pr field

Not sure if it's possible with your current approach. Here is how I would approach this.

In your node template file just do a {{ content.field_pr }}

Create a template file for your paragraph.

paragraph__[view_mode] (e.g. paragraph--default.html.twig)

paragraph__[type] (e.g. paragraph--image.html.twig)

paragraph__[type]__[view_mode] (e.g. paragraph--image--default.html.twig)

source: Theming in Paragraphs for Drupal 8

In paragraph--[type].html.twig you do {{ content.field_text }} and {{ content.field_color }}

    Apologies for my ignorance but how do I render paragraph.html.twig on my template file (page.html.twig)?

    @clestcruz why not in node.html.twig?

  • @NoSssweat node.html.twig? Sorry I was trying to figure out how I can just print the values from my paragraph to my templates file. So far I've managed to create a paragraph.html.twig. I'm still new to Drupal apologies

  • @clestcruz, yes you'll need to create node--[content-type-name].html.twig. Ex: node--articles.html.twig and follow my answer.

    @clestcruz i recommend using what NoSssweat said. Use node.html.twig and display the field using {{content.field_machine_name_paragraph}}. Then enable Twig debugging and you can create a new twig template from there. Nov 6, 2018 at 23:29

To print paragraph fields in a loop (for sliders, etc.) in page--content-type.html.twig use below snippet:

{% for item in node.field_paragraph_mac_name %}
  {{ item.entity.field_title.value }}
  <img src="{{ file_url(item.entity.field_image.entity.fileuri) }}" />
{% endfor %}
  • To print alt tag, use alt="{{item.entity.field_image.alt}}".

    Why we can't use {{ item.entity.field_title }} directly? The problem is for field such as "body" that need specific rendering. Using {{ item.entity.field_body.value }} will requiere to use an usafe {{ item.entity.field_body.value|raw }}.

I figured this one out. With Twig Tweak enabled you can print paragraphs from the node object without using content:

{% for item in node.field_my_paragraph_field %}
     {{ drupal_entity('paragraph', item.target_id) }}
{% endfor %}

    Just use {{ content.field_my_paragraph }} instead, does exactly the same, is cache safe, is more performant, and does not require an extra module.

Building on the answer by user33560. If you have have nested paragraphs and you want to print or get the 2nd-level paragraph fields from within the 1st-level paragraph.html.twig:

{% set paragraph_name = content.field_paragraph_name %}

{% for item in paragraph_name['#items'] %}
    {{ drupal_entity('paragraph', item.target_id) }}
{% endfor %}

You can also use {{ content.field_paragraph_name }} to print all paragraph items, or print a subset such as {{ content.field_paragraph_name.field_example }}. Use {{ content.field_paragraph_name|without('field_example') }} to temporarily suppress the printing of a given child element.


You can use {{ node.ref_field_name.entity.field_name.value }}
