I have a page--front.html.twig file. I can't figure out how to show a specific node title and body summary on the frontpage with only using twig. I know I can create a view of something like that and show it with: {{ drupal_view('viewmachinename', 'blockname') }}, but in my opinion it's a little bit overkill for just showing the title and body of specific node.

Normally I show the current node title and body summary with {{ node.label }} and {{node.body.summary}}, but I don't know how to show the page title and body summary with an other nid.

I try to show the page title and body summary with nid 2 on the frontpage.

  • Are you doing this just to learn twig? If not then you can configure which node is shown on the front page in Configuration > System > Basic site settings. Enter /node/2 in the Front page field.

  • Yes I know, but page node 2 is not my front page. It has content which should be displayed at the frontpage. Commented Jan 23, 2021 at 12:38

If you must do this in twig only, you can use the drupal_field() function provided by the Twig Tweak module.

For example, to print the title of node 2:

{{ drupal_field('title', 'node', 2) }}

Or to print the body field for node 2 using the field's configuration from the teaser view mode:

{{ drupal_field('body', 'node', 2, 'teaser') }}

Or to print an image field with custom formatter settings:

{{ drupal_field('field_image', 'node', 2, {type: 'image_url', settings: {image_style: 'large'}}) }}

I'd probably aim to create a custom view mode here and then print the whole view mode as one chunk with the drupal_entity() function. For example:

{{ drupal_entity('node', 2, 'my_custom_view_mode') }}
