i have a custom module, and a custom block... how can i call this variable from my example.html.twig file?

Hi! I was just looking this up too, you would call it in the "*.module" file using the preprocess override hook, ex:

function hook_preprocess_html(&$variables) {
  $variables['page_url'] = \Drupal::request()->getRequestUri();

Then, use the {{ page_url }} in your *html.twig file.

Anyone else, please feel free to correct me if I am wrong :)
