This is related to Paragraphs module in Drupal 8. I have enabled paragraphs module and Entity Reference Revisions module. Then I created a new paragraph type in Admin Structure Paragraph types. After that I added fields to the new paragraph type.

  • In Drupal 8, individual migrations are built around an entity type. That means we implement a single migration for each entity type. Sometimes we draw relationships between the element being imported and an already imported one of a different type, but we never handle the migration of.

Wait, is it '$node->title' or '$node->title->value'? How do I write an EntityQuery again? Yeah, I can never remember, either.

For the developers out there, if you've already read the official Drupal 8 Entity API documentation and you want more examples, here's a handy cheat sheet:

The examples here contain some hard-coded IDs. These are all examples. In your real code, you should already have the node IDs, file IDs, etc. in a variable.

Working with nodes

Load a node by NID:

Get node's NID:

Get node's bundle type:

Get a built-in field value:

or the shorthand, with magic getters:

For more about that file entity target ID, see the 'Working with File Entities' section below

Get nodes from a query:

Set fields

Delete node(s)

Working with File entities

Managed files are also separate entities, which are associated with the node using a type of Entity Reference.

Get a file by ID:

Get a file referenced in a node:

Reading some properties from a File entity:

To see what other properties are available, look at the columns in the `file_managed` table.

Working with Entity References

Reading from entity reference fields that allow multiple values:

Populate the value of an entity reference field which allows multiple values (this replaces any existing value in the DB)

Append new referenced items to an entity reference field (this preserves existing values)

I hope this saves everyone some time. It certainly is helpful to me every time I write a custom Drupal 8 module.

Happy coding!

I prefer $node->bundle() rather than $node->getType() since it will work with all entity types, and getType() can be confused with getEntityType() or getEntityTypeId().
