Provide replacement values for placeholder tokens.

This hook is invoked when someone calls \Drupal\Core\Utility\Token::replace(). That function first scans the text for [type:token] patterns, and splits the needed tokens into groups by type. Then hook_tokens() is invoked on each token-type group, allowing your module to respond by providing replacement text for any of the tokens in the group that your module knows how to process.

A module implementing this hook should also implement hook_token_info() in order to list its available tokens on editing screens.

Parameters

$type: The machine-readable name of the type (group) of token being replaced, such as 'node', 'user', or another type defined by a hook_token_info() implementation.

$tokens: An array of tokens to be replaced. The keys are the machine-readable token names, and the values are the raw [type:token] strings that appeared in the original text.

array $data: An associative array of data objects to be used when generating replacement values, as supplied in the $data parameter to \Drupal\Core\Utility\Token::replace().

array $options: An associative array of options for token replacement; see \Drupal\Core\Utility\Token::replace() for possible values.

\Drupal\Core\Render\BubbleableMetadata $bubbleable_metadata: The bubbleable metadata. Prior to invoking this hook, \Drupal\Core\Utility\Token::generate() collects metadata for all of the data objects in $data. For any data sources not in $data, but that are used by the token replacement logic, such as global configuration (e.g., 'system.site') and related objects (e.g., $node->getOwner()), implementations of this hook must add the corresponding metadata. For example:

$bubbleable_metadata
  ->addCacheableDependency(\Drupal::config('system.site'));
$bubbleable_metadata
  ->addCacheableDependency($node
  ->getOwner());

Additionally, implementations of this hook, must forward $bubbleable_metadata to the chained tokens that they invoke. For example:

if ($created_tokens = $token_service
  ->findWithPrefix($tokens, 'created')) {
  $replacements = $token_service
    ->generate('date', $created_tokens, array(
    'date' => $node
      ->getCreatedTime(),
  ), $options, $bubbleable_metadata);
}

Return value

array An associative array of replacement values, keyed by the raw [type:token] strings from the original text. The returned values must be either plain text strings, or an object implementing MarkupInterface if they are HTML-formatted.
