I have a site built with Drupal 8 and the Twig Tweak module. I want to make the current user's frontpage_tasks display mode on my home page. How to do this ?

I can make a user's frontpage_tasks display mode by manually entering their ID :

page--front.html.twig :

{{ drupal_entity('user', 51, 'frontpage_tasks') }}
{{ drupal_entity('commerce_store', ???, 'frontpage_tasks') }}
{{ drupal_entity('group', ???, 'frontpage_tasks') }}

For stores, I want to display all stores that the current user owns.

For groups, I want to display all groups whose current user is the creator.

What I want to do is render the current user account, stores and groups with frontpage_tasks view mode.

    The problem is that a page normally shouldn't have a cache dependency for the current user. If you placed this as a block via the block layout this dependency would be resolved automatically. This block could be built by a custom block plugin or Views.

  • @4k4 I don't want to save my view, I want to delete it. I'm trying to put a simple TWIG code. I don't have a cache problem. No problem making the display mode current user. I still have to do the stores and groups of the current user.

In a Twig template you can get the current user id with user.id.

With the help of Twig Tweak you can use it to render the user entity:

{{ drupal_entity('user', user.id, 'full') }}

As discussed in the comments this only works if your template has already a cache context for the current user.

  • I already have the answer from Sssweat and it works. My problem is with stores and groups. See chat

    I took a different approach in answering the original question with the main focus on caching. For other topics like stores or groups please ask separate questions providing more details.
