In order to alter a menu item that is provided by a module/system, you can use hook_preprocess_menu__MENUNAME() (Since hook_menu_alter() no longer exists).

I was trying to theme a specific vocabulary and a specific view mode and the suggestions, by default, didn't allow for this. After some searching I came across this article, which mentioned using the hook:
So, I added the function below in my .theme file to make the following template suggestion available: 'taxonomy_term__VOCABULARY__VIEW_MODE'
I was working on a new Drupal 8 site and had a new geolocation view setup to show locations on a Google map. Everything was working well, then I decided I wanted to add a new field to the node and include that field in the view. After adding the field to the view, I decided against using it and deleted the field from the node (before removing it from the view).

There was a terrible lag when accessing the GlusterFS file systems and there weren't any glaring errors in the log files.
* Implements template_preprocess_node().
Adding placeholder text to a Drupal 8 form element that is the label of the form can be done in your .theme file with the hook template_preprocess_input().
Today I had the task of gathering files from a Drupal website into an archive to send to a client. The files were stored in the database and were spread out across the public files and the private files directories. In order to create an archive and prevent the client from manually clicking on 1000 file download links, I did the following.
I came across a need to keep a menu link active, but, I didn't want it to be displayed to the anonymous user. After much searching I found the hook_menu_link_alter() function and the hook_translated_menu_link_alter() function.
With these functions, I was able to alter the menu item that I wanted to not display with hook_menu_link_alter():
