In Drupal 8, We need to keep our custom,  contributed module in root directory.




Create a custom module

Add file to store metadata about the module.


name: Custom page
description: 'Custom Page' 
type: module 
core: 8.x 
package: Custom


Declare the path and its options

In drupal7, there is a hook_menu() to declare the path.

In drupal8, create the file custom_page.routing.yml.


Codes to return the body content of the page

Routing Yaml File:

The routing information is stored in custom_page.routing.yml.

  path: '/mypage/page'
    _controller: '\Drupal\custom_page\Controller\ExampleController::myPage'
    _title: 'My custom page in Drupal8'
    _permission: 'access content'

custom_page.my_page - This is the machine name of the route.

path - This gives the path to the page on your site. Note the leading slash (/).

defaults - This describes the page and title callbacks.

requirements - This specifies the conditions under which the page will be displayed. You can specify permissions, modules that must be enabled, and other conditions.


Controller php File:

The Controller class ExampleController should be defined in custom_page/src/Controller/ExampleController.php:

namespace Drupal\custom_page\Controller;

use Drupal\Core\Controller\ControllerBase;

 * Provides route responses for the Example module.
class ExampleController extends ControllerBase {

   * Returns a simple page.
   * @return array
   *   A simple renderable array.
  public function myPage() {
    $element = array(
      '#markup' => 'Hello, world',
    return $element;



After clear the cache and see the following output:
