Release Day: Theme Hook Suggestions

Drupal 8 Theming

We just added 2 new tutorials about theme hook suggestions! First learn how Drupal determines which template file to use in What Are Template Files? Then harness the power of theme hook suggestions and learn how to Discover Existing Theme Hook Suggestions and Add New Theme Hook Suggestions.

As a prerequisite, you should understand the basics of theming in Drupal 8. You can learn these by starting at the beginning of our Drupal 8 Theming Guide. Also, make sure you're up to speed with how Drupal deals with templates by reviewing What Are Template Files?

This guide is a departure from our normal video-only tutorials. It includes diagrams, written tutorials, and video tutorials—everything you need to learn Drupal 8 quickly and effectively.

Give our new tutorials a spin, and let us know your thoughts. Before the end of the month, we’ll release a handful of tutorials about JavaScript Libraries in Drupal core, so be on the lookout for those, too.

Great! you guys are doing an awesome job with the Drupal 8 Theming Guide. It would be great if you guys had a forum or allowed the ability to add comments under the video tutorials. Comments/forums opens up alternate ways of doing stuff and allows other students to share their ideas/mishaps.

Excellent idea—thank you! I added this to our list of feature suggestions. We're always looking for ways to make our training better for our members.
