In this tuto, I'll show you how to get the route name of the current page in Drupal 8.

To get the current route name, use:

$route_name = \Drupal::routeMatch()->getRouteName();


$current_route_name = \Drupal::service('current_route_match')->getRouteName();

To check if the current page is a taxonomy term use:

if (\Drupal::routeMatch()->getRouteName() == 'entity.taxonomy_term.canonical') {
    $term_id = \Drupal::routeMatch()->getRawParameter('taxonomy_term');

To check if the current page is a node, node preview or node revision use:

$route_match = \Drupal::routeMatch();
if ($route_match->getRouteName() == 'entity.node.canonical') {
    $node = $route_match->getParameter('node');
elseif ($route_match->getRouteName() == 'entity.node.revision') {
    $revision_id = $route_match->getParameter('node_revision');
    $node = node_revision_load($revision_id);
elseif ($route_match->getRouteName() == 'entity.node.preview') {
    $node = $route_match->getParameter('node_preview');

To check if the current page is a contact form page use:

if (\Drupal::routeMatch()->getRouteName() == 'entity.contact_form.canonical') {
    //  contact form
    $contact_form = \Drupal::routeMatch()->getParameter('contact_form');

To check if the current page is a view page use:

$current_route_name = \Drupal::service('current_route_match')->getRouteName();

The route names from views are built like this view.[view_name].[display_id].

List the existing routes:

You can list the existing routes with Drupal Console:
