Drupal 8.x

I have 2 quick questions. I have the following node template node--briefing--teaser.html.twig

  <span>{{ date }}</span>
  <span>{{ label }}</span>
  <a href="{{ content.links.uri }}"></a>

Now the questions are:

  • How can I format the date to the following d/m/Y
  • How can I get the URI of the read more field (links)

With a normal link field you can simply do content.my_link.0['#url'] to get this but that doesn't seem to be the case with the node links field.

Thanks in advance!

  • @Hudri I already tried those answers and none of them gave any output. I guess the Links field is formatted differently ? Sep 20, 2019 at 9:09
  • Sorry, I misunderstood your question, I thought you meant a "real" URL field. I never use that weirdo pseudo "Links" field.

    If it is of any help, you can get the URL to the node full view using {{ url }}, see api.drupal.org/api/drupal/…

  • Yeah I just had to use the URL attribute in twig to get what I want. Sep 20, 2019 at 9:27

Answer for the date formating: {{ date.value|date('U')|format_date('custom', 'j/m/Y') }}

For the URI investigate the data structure with twig vardumper.
