A very popular drink that can be found at many parties in Trinidad and Tobago is rum and coconut water. Amazingly this drink is not very popular globally. I am not sure if this drink originated in Trinidad and Tobago but it is definitely consumed within the Caribbean region, particularly in Trinidad and Tobago.

In this tutorial I will explain how I accomplished taking a listing of nodes that came from a View and created a Parallax scrolling effect using the Bootstrap theme from Drupal 8.

You will need to have Drupal 8 installed with Views and a Bootstrap subtheme set up.

For this tutorial, I am using a simple Page content type that I created with 3 fields: Title, Body and Background Image.

You should then create a View that lists this Page content type. I am listing the Body field and Background Image field in my example. I am keeping my Page content type and View very simple for explanation purposes. But you can set up more complex Views and content types as you wish. You just need at least an image field (or you can place a background image to an existing content type field via CSS as well).

In this article we are going to look at how we can render custom images using image styles in your Twig template in Drupal 8. By custom images, I mean images that originate from a custom module/theme (not an image originating from a field entity/node). In other words, the image would not even exist in "public://your-image.png" but rather it might exist somewhere in your custom module or theme.
