I need the argument value in the theme templates and using the views-views-fields--view_name--block_1.jhtml.twig.

I'm current getting the current URL like that:

{% set url = url('current')%}

Which outputs:


But I need only the 12225 value from the current url. How can I get the last parameter from the current URL in Twig?

You could use Twig's split filter, though I don't recommend scripting too much inside templates.

Instead I recommend to pass the value over to Twig from a preprocess function from inside your theme or a custom module via template_preprocess_views_view_fields.

 * Implements template_preprocess_views_view_fields().
function MYTHEME/MYMODULE_preprocess_views_view_fields(&$variables) {

  // Retrieve an array which contains the path pieces.
  $current_path = \Drupal::service('path.current')->getPath();

  if ($current_path[0] == 'questions') {
    $variables['question_id'] = $current_path[1];

And then inside your template print it for example like so:

{% if question_id %}
  <div id="{{ question_id }}">Question ID: {{ question_id }}</div>
{% endif %}

I don't know it is best way or not but can help you You are using the {% set url = url('current>') %} After dump, it turned out that's what

array(3) { 
    ["#markup"]=> string(23) "http://example.com/category" 
    ["#cache"]=> array(3) { 
         ["contexts"]=> array(2) { 
                [0]=> string(5) "route" 
                [1]=>string(8) "url.site" 
         ["tags"]=> array(0) { } 
         ["max-age"]=> int(-1) 
    ["#attached"]=> array(0) { } 

Convert array to sting

{% set url = url('<current>')['#markup'] %}

{{ url|split('/')|last }}

you will get the last value part of the URL

I was also trying to get the url parameters, but the current path was only returning the path without the parameters.

The following solution worked for me in a page preprocess function, I haven't tried with views fields but it should work also.

function yourtheme_preprocess_views_view_fields(&$variables) {

  // Retrieve an array which contains the path parameters.
  $variables['params']['parameter_name'] = $_GET['parameter_name'];

To fetch the current path with query string in views you can also use the Views Current Path (Global: Current Path) module.

Provides a Views field that displays the URL of the current page being viewed.

  • Nice module, but this is not what OP asked for.
