I know how to check if a field is empty in a twig template (example node--lorem.html.twig):

{% if node.field_lorem.value is not empty %}

    <p>not empty</p>

{% else %}  


{% endif %}  

I would like to check if a field is not empty inside a paragraph twig template (example paragraph--lorem.html.twig). But this doesn't work :

{% if content.field_lorem.value is not empty %}


{% if node.field_lorem.value is not empty %}

I can display this field value like this :

{{ content.field_lorem }}

    How do I get the raw field value in a twig template? - Replace node with paragraph

  • @Hudri No, I just want to check if a paragraph field is empty or not. I don't want to get the raw value. Feb 25, 2022 at 12:41

    {% if paragraph.field_lorem.value %}, not node. Not content. content contains only fields that have been added to the display of your entity.

To check if a field is empty use ItemList::isEmpty


{% if node.field_example.isempty %}
  <p>Field is empty</p>
{% endif %}


{% if paragraph.field_example.isempty %}
  <p>Field is empty</p>
{% endif %}
