First, I am new to Magento 2. My aim is to achieve when products added in the backend I want it to show in my custom template.

Can anyone suggest some methods to do it?

You need to create a custom module for this and create a custom block in app\code\Vendor\Module\Block\Product.php

namespace Vendor\Module\Block;
class Product extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
    protected $_productCollectionFactory;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context $context,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory $productCollectionFactory,
        array $data = []
        $this->_productCollectionFactory = $productCollectionFactory;
        parent::__construct($context, $data);

    public function getProductCollection()
        $collection = $this->_productCollectionFactory->create();
        return $collection;

And create your custom template in app\code\Vendor\Module\view\frontend\templates\your_template.php

$productCollection = $block->getProductCollection();
foreach ($productCollection as $product) {
    echo "<br>";

Call your custom template in any xml

<referenceContainer name="content">
    <block class="Vendor\Module\Block\Product" name="custom.block" template="Vendor_Module:: your_template.phtml"/>

Or you can call your template in cms pages using

{{block class="Vendor\Module\Block\Product" template="Vendor_Module:: your_template.phtml"}}

  • create a file in app\code\Vendor\Module\view\frontend\layout\catalog_product_view.xml each page will have some separate xml file name..You can see those in like vendor\magento\module-catalog\view\frontend\layout Jan 23, 2020 at 11:47
