I have added no results behaviour text to a view called Events which is a page. This template I am using has a twig called views-view--events--page_1.twig. I want to add the no results text to this twig template, but I can't find any way to do it. How can this be done?

    Look for views-view.html.twig in core and compare it with your template. You may be missing a lot more than just the empty case. Also, twig overrides end in .html.twig. See Views template files for the correct way to name your views templates.

It's always useful to look at the original template (views-view.html.twig). The documentation list the available variables, which in this case are the following.

  • attributes: Remaining HTML attributes for the element
  • css_name: A css-safe version of the view name
  • css_class: The user-specified classes names, if any
  • header: The optional header
  • footer: The optional footer
  • rows: The results of the view query, if any
  • empty: The content to display if there are no rows
  • pager: The optional pager next/prev links to display
  • exposed: Exposed widget form/info to display
  • feed_icons: Optional feed icons to display
  • more: An optional link to the next page of results
  • title: Title of the view, only used when displaying in the admin preview
  • title_prefix: Additional output populated by modules, intended to be displayed in front of the view title
  • title_suffix: Additional output populated by modules, intended to be displayed after the view title
  • attachment_before: An optional attachment view to be displayed before the view content
  • attachment_after: An optional attachment view to be displayed after the view content
  • dom_id: Unique id for every view being printed to give unique class for Javascript

{{ empty }} appears to be what you're after.
