I have a blog where basic author information needs to be printed out.

Basically, I want to print author name and profile picture in my article teaser template.

I tried googling but none of the answers seemed to help.

Can I somehow access Author object?

Put this on top of your node.html.twig or similar template

  set author_pic = {
    '#theme':      'image_style',
    '#style_name': 'thumbnail',
    '#uri':        node.uid.entity.user_picture.entity.uri.value,
    '#attributes': { class: 'authorImg' },

Use this anywhere in the same template you want to output the author image

{{ author_pic }}
  • Thanks, works fine. Though, I had to delete /* image style name */ comment, otherwise php error occurs. Mar 5, 2018 at 11:23
  • Yes you are right I did not realize ... corrected it
