What are Hyvä Themes?
Hyvä is a powerful performant frontend theme for Magento web development that has a supportive community of developers. It's an innovative software with a reduced tech stack, making development less complex, and reducing development time and cost compared to the default Magento Luma Theme. If you’d like to learn about Hyvä, check out our blog - What is Hyvä?
How Compatible is Hyvä?
Hyvä is currently compatible with all Adobe Commerce Open Source features, but it is not yet compatible with all Magento modules out the box. However, you can make the Magento modules Hyvä compatible with some development to ensure the frontend functionality works as expected. - Each module will require varying amounts of development to become compatible.
As mentioned previously Hyvä is known for its reduced complexity compared to Luma theme, and its lower developmental costs. With the continued support from the community, modules are being developed and available for free, making integrating the modules easier and quicker.
The growing Hyvä community
Due to the committed nature and advocacy of the Hyvä community, developers have been creating compatibility modules that are free to use. There is a list of Hyvä modules that are in progress of development by the community or are already available, helping to optimise the frontend theme. All that is required is to install the compatibility module alongside the standard module and you will instantly have the functionality of the original modules working on your store, with all the added frontend performance and UX benefits that Hyva brings.
The Hyvä module tracker allows the community to see the status of, and request any new modules for compatibility. We love the feature allowing Hyvä license holders the ability to vote for modules that they want to see developed.
In some instances, some of the modules which have been developed may not replicate all the functionality of the original solution. The creator may have made it compatible to the extent of what they required, however, because these are open source, any developers can add features and continue the development of these to improve the ever-growing community.
Each developed module is published in the “hyva-themes” composer namespace with a release number, allowing for installation through the Hyvä packagist repository.
Develo’s Hyvä Compatibility Modules
As Hyvä solution specialists we are part of the community of web developers creating and contributing to compatibility modules for our Hyvä builds.
Hyvä Stripe Integration Module
We have developed a Hyvä and Stripe payment method integration, easing payment processes for merchants and optimising their checkout options with instant pay. We created this for our client, Made with Love and Sparkle to reduce drop-offs throughout the customer buying journey and help conversions.
Hyvä Mirasvit Banner Integration Module
Our team of Magento web developers have also created a compatibility module for Magento 2 Mirasvit Banner. This is a rotator and pop-up banner that a member of the Hyvä community required. It offers the ability to analyse data for clients to make appropriate decisions.
See our walk-through on how we developed this.
Hyvä FactFinder Integration Module
Factfinder is an AI-driven search system giving customers search and filter options on category pages. We developed this integration for FactFinder for our client; 'Lubricant Supplies', creating more refined search results for their customers.
Producing this compat module makes FactFinder accessible to Hyvä theme users, optimising category pages for merchants.
Hyvä’s community is ever-growing and with the support from developers, compat modules are continuously being delivered, increasing its compatibility and helping to make it increasingly popular as an alternative to the default Magento frontend.
