D8: Disable Block Programmatically on Just One View or Node


It's not always possible to use a path to determine block visibility.

Therefore, here is how you programmatically disable a block on specific view without recourse to path.

 * Implements hook_preprocess_HOOK().
function tns_breadcrumb_preprocess_page(&$vars) {
  // Remove block from all content that isn't a specific view.
  $view_id = Drupal::request()->attributes->get('view_id');
  if (empty($view_id) || $view_id == 'myviewID') {
    if (isset($vars['page']['myregion']['myblock'])) { // You have to look around and figure out where your block is.

If you want to use parameters from the node to determine visibility, do:

$node = Drupal::request()->attributes->get('node');
