I have created a view that has many fields including a link field. I am using a twig template. my view twig name is views-view-fields--dashboard--block_3.html.twig It works nicely but I need to render a path in an anchor tag. here is my code.

<a href="{{ fields.view_node.content}}">
    <div class="mail-contnet">
        <h5>{{ fields.title.content }}</h5>
        <span class="mail-desc">{{ fields.body.content }}</span>
        <span class="time">{{ fields.created.content }}</span>

In the anchor tag, I am getting the link but it has twig debugging wrappers. The result is bellow

<a href="    
<!-- THEME DEBUG -->
<!-- THEME HOOK: 'views_view_field' -->
<!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'core/modules/views/templates/views-view-field.html.twig' -->
<!-- END OUTPUT from 'core/modules/views/templates/views-view-field.html.twig' -->    

and I need only the path. I have already tried the twig_field_value module. but when I {{ fields.view_node.content|field_value}}

Error: Cannot use object of type Drupal\Core\Render\Markup as array in Drupal\twig_field_value\Twig\Extension\FieldValueExtension->isFieldRenderArray() (line 171 of modules\contrib\twig_field_value\src\Twig\Extension\FieldValueExtension.php).

Now I am looking for how to render the value of an anchor tag without any wrapper.

  • I think you have enabled Twig Debugging in services.yml file ,just make debug = false

  • Better put the Twig code in the rewrite section of the field in UI, see drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/218022/…

  • @4k4 I have to use some inline CSS and some conditions which I can't get through rewrite fields Commented Nov 6, 2019 at 9:35
  • But for that part you have shown in the question you can rewrite the field. For other things you can still use the views templates or other methods like a custom field handler.

If you want to remove twig debug comments you can use striptags filter

Like the following:

{{ fields.view_node.content|striptags}}
