Let's see how to access the content's values from these tokens, but also to the values ​​indirectly associated with these contents, from Entity reference fields.

If you just want your content to be cached before Drupal 8, there were almost no problems, just turn on caching for anonymous users, and you are all set. Muhahhaha! Who am I kidding... If you just want your content to be cached before Drupal 8, there were almost no problems, just turn on caching for anonymous users, and you are all set. Muhahhaha! Who am I kidding... If you want to interact with users with different content depending on the user, role etc. You got problems, if you want to invalidate the cache, you got problems.

Twig is a powerful templating engine with many useful features. In the context of Drupal, especially when coming from a Drupal 7 way of doing things, it can be easy to overlook many of these features in the interest of just getting the job done quickly.  However, taking the time to learn Twig beyond just printing variables is worthwhile, because it can help you solve common problems.

This has not been a fun couple of weeks in the Drupal community.
