I have a paragraph that has a field of type paragraph reference to sub-paragraphs.

Within my template, I need to access these sub-paragraphs and render the entity element. I have a loop that loops through a list of Drupal\paragraphs\Entity\Paragraph elements.

I need to render the paragraph markup. Is there a function?

I tried item|render and item.view(), but neither of them worked.


You should be able to render the sub paragraph - without any loop, just like every other field - with

{{ content.field_name }}

If you really need the loop for some special markup you can try something like

{% for key, item in content.field_name if key|first != '#' %}
  <div class="some_additional_markup">
    {{ item }}
{% endfor %}
  • Thanks Hudri. Your script does give me the exact list of results as my loop. A list of Paragraphs. {{ item }} is an object of type Drupal\paragraphs\Entity\Paragraph but this is not rendered. I need to turn them into markups. In D7 i used to use entity_view('paragraphs_item', $entities, 'full'); How to do this in D8? Is there a way to achieve this in Twig? Or should I create a Twig Function as the Twig context is not able to create markups of entities? – mogio Nov 19 '17 at 23:06

    Are you using {{ content.items }} or {{ paragraph.items }}? The first should provide the render arrays, the latter should give you the objects. If that's not the case, it seems like an error to me. Regarding entity_view, I suggest to take a look at at the Twig tweaks module – Hudri Nov 20 '17 at 7:09
  • yeah u are right. Weird... tested it yesterday night and I could not render it. Thanks again – mogio Nov 20 '17 at 10:14
  • ok. but how to access the field of the paragraph as markups? {% set item_field_tax_1 = item|first.field_tax_1 %} {{ item_field_tax_1 }} Gives me the error "Object of type Drupal\Core\Field\EntityReferenceFieldItemList cannot be printed". – mogio Nov 20 '17 at 10:43
  • ok to anybody who will have this issue as well. Please use this module drupal.org/project/twig_render_this. It creates a twig extension that allows you to render Field Elements directly without having to use the predefined content element. Pretty much what I wanted to write myself. – mogio Nov 20 '17 at 11:04

If you want to use a field value in child paragraph within the parent paragraph, you can use this (replace of course field_with_paragraph_childs and field_name_field with the actual fieldnames):

{% for key, item in paragraph.field_with_paragraph_childs if key|first != '#' %}
        <div class="some_additional_markup">
                {{ item.entity.field_name_field.value }}
{% endfor %}
