I have a field field_file. I've created a template field--field_file.html.twig.

How can I access the link, description (and attributes and icon ) separately in this file?

I have:

{% for item in items %}
  {{ item.content }}
{% endfor %}

which just spits out themed content.

I've debugged with dump() and there seems like the possibility of at least retrieving the 'description' somehow, but item.description does not work, for example.

File link: {{ file_url(item.content['#file'].getFileUri()) }}

File description: {{ item.content['#description'] }}
