Extending Twig Templates with Blocks...

One of the many good things about Drupal 8 is the introduction of Twig. It's a lovely templating engine that, in my opinion, is far superior to PHPTemplate. For us frontenders, it has a much nicer user syntax that's more akin to handlebars or other JS templating engines. Imagine this…
