Developing a simple D8 Twig theme


I am very new to Drupal and not an advanced programmer, so I am working on creating an extremely simple Drupal 8 Twig theme, but I keep getting error messages in the admin area, and after creating a node with some content, none of the content is showing up. The one thing that is working is that Drupal is inserting code into the “head” area, but nothing else seems to be working other than that. Here’s what I have so far:

My theme consists of four very basic files: my-theme.info.yml, html.html.twig, screenshot.png, and css/layout.css. I’ve plopped them in a folder titled, “bluejay” and placed it in the “themes” directory of my test site.

For the file “bluejay.info.yml” I have the following code:

name: Bluejay
type: theme
description: This is my super simple admin theme.
package: Bluejay
version: 0.1
core: 8.x
    - css/layout.css
    header: 'Header'
    content: 'Content'
    sidebar_first: 'Sidebar first'
    footer: 'Footer'
    shortcut_module_link: '0'
engine: twig
screenshot: screenshot.png

For the file “html.html.twig” I have:

* @file
* Default theme implementation to display an html page.

{{ head }}

Drupal 8 theme question

Am I the only only one in the wold that is sad over the change to the theme layer?
Lets hope that we can still use plane old fashion php in theme files ! With an option to use twig
Cause it will really turn some people off using an unessisary
Sub script / the learning curve for new players will be a bit Bigger - and over all make projects take abit longer
(You know what I mean - where bosses want it just done as quickly as possale )
Sory for my rant but we don't want drupal 8 to be a lemon like windows 8.
