I'm working on a Drupal 8 project and in my module X twig template I need to include the template of an other module Y. All what I found in documentation is how to call a template inside other template in theme see here

I've tried in my twig-of-module-X.html.twig file:

{% include 'modules/Y/templates/twig-of-module-Y.html.twig' %}

but doesn't work! Any suggestion please?

Include the template file with its namespace:

{% include '@modulename/template_file.html.twig' %}

{# @modulename refers to 'path_to_module/templates' #}

Drupal provides a @namespace for Twig based on the machine name of every module and every theme. The @namespace points to the templates sub-directory of that module or theme.

  • Thanks bro! please update your answer use {% %} instead of {{ }}

  • And also @modulename refers to path_to_module/templates so some_subdir means templates directory sub_dirs it works for me thanks :)

  • should not use templates in path it's included in twig namespace (@modulename) {% include '@modulename/if_a_subdir_exist_in_templates_directory/template_file.html.twig' %}

    @dibs Yeah! you could do it using with keyword. example: {% include '@modulename/template-file.html.twig' with {'var1': 'Hello world'} %} And in template-file.html.twig: <h1>{{ var1 }}</h1>
