What is Hyvä?

Hyvä is an extremely well-optimised and high performing Magento 2 theme that we’ve been following from the moment it launched in 2021.

We found that taking the stock Magento 2 front-end theme "Luma" is often not a suitable option for new builds. Originally released many years ago, it is no longer capable of meeting performance standards like Google Core Web Vitals and does not fulfil modern user expectations.

Hyvä have solved that - not by building a headless solution but by resetting with a blank theme and using best-of-breed front-end technology, coupled with the usual Magento 2 back-end. And because the technology used is reasonably simple for a proficient front-end team to learn and maintain, it's become our front-end choice for performant Magento 2 websites.

Hyvä brings the performance of a PWA/headless site without the added effort of moving away from the monolithic stack that has been serving Magento sites for over a decade. The platform is fully supported by Hyvä themselves and the wider community - you're not locked in to one agency's toolset and any good Magento/dev agencies should be able to support and enhance this approach.

Why Hyvä with Unified?

We are Hyvä suppliers and play an active role in the Hyvä community, so whenever new functionality and features are released (which is frequently), the businesses we work with are among the first to benefit and gain a competitive edge.

We have attended meetups both in-person and virtually to discover what's on the Hyvä roadmap and taking part in important discussions around the Magento ecosystem as a whole.

As an added bonus, the front-end tech stack chosen for Hyvä is the same as we chose to build our Shopify framework "Origin", which means our development team can flex between eCommerce platforms while using the same front-end technologies.

Feel free to talk to us about how we've used Hyvä for our clients, or how we can help you.
