How to get fields list in drupal 8

If you want to get all field list of a specific field type in Drupal 8 there is a easiest way to get them. Lets say you want to get all entity reference fields from all content types.

You just need to use this function in your class. You also need to load entity manager service into class.

$ref_fields = $this->entityManager->getStorage('field_storage_config')->loadByProperties(
        'settings' => array(
          'target_type' => 'node',
        'entity_type' => 'node',
        'type' => 'entity_reference',
        'deleted' => FALSE,
        'status' => 1,

Call core services of Drupal 8 via the service container

It is not very good way to call Drupal core services directly in the class. Try to avoid such code in your code. Intead of doing that you can inject core services through service containner. Following code will help you to know how you should do that.


   * Database Service Object.
   * @var \Drupal\Core\Database\Connection
  protected $connection;

  public function __construct(Connection $connection) {
    $this->connection = $connection;

   * {@inheritdoc}
  public static function create() {
    return new static($container->get('database'), $container->get('entity.manager')->getStorage('taxonomy_vocabulary')

  public function validatefunction($arg) { 
    $select = $this->connection->select('taxonomy_index', 'ti')->fields('ti', array('tid'));
    $result = $select->execute();

So intead of calling $connection = \Drupal::database(); , you should inject core services into your class visa container service.

Similarterms module in

This Drupal module attempts to provide context for content items by displaying a view block with links to other similar content. Similarity is based on the taxonomy terms assigned to content. Views are available based on similarity within each of the defined vocabularies for a site as well as similarity within all vocabularies.

What does this really mean? How should you use this module?

1) Create a freetagging vocabulary called “Tags” assigned to the content types on which you’d like to display the “Similar” view block.
2) Enable the view block called “Similar entries from the Tags vocabulary”.
3) Add keyword tags to the content.
