Drupal 8's routes may include placeholder elements which designate places where the URL contains dynamic values. In the controller method, this value is available when a variable with the same name is used in the controller method.

For example in mymodule.routing.yml:

  path: '/mymodule/{name}'
    _controller: '\Drupal\mymodule\Controller\MyModuleController::content'
    _permission: 'access content'

The {name} element in the URL is called a slug and is available as a $name in the content method.


namespace Drupal\mymodule\Controller;

use Drupal\Core\Controller\ControllerBase;

 * Class MyModuleController
 * @package Drupal\mymodule\Controller
class MyModuleController extends ControllerBase

   * @param $name
   * @return array
  public function content($name)
    return [
      '#type' => 'markup',
      '#markup' => $this->t('Hello @name .', array('@name' => $name)),
