Hyvä 1.1 is availableAbout a month and a half after the release of version 1.0 of Hyvä Themes, the updated version is available, which includes new features. We want to take this as an opportunity to take a look at what has happened around Hyvä Themes in the meantime.
New features in Hyvä Themes 1.1The update of Hyvä Themes extends the range of functions so that further standard functions of Magento can be used with Hyvä Themes without further effort. These include:
- Page Builder (for Magento Commerce)
- Swatches in product lists and on product detail pages
- Language & country switch
- Currency switch
- Login as customer
The preview of product variants is now also available in product lists and on product detail pages via swatches.
Visual Editor for Hyvä ThemesVisual editors for content in Magento have been a big topic in the Magento community for years. This is because only those who use Magento Commerce can use the Page Builder, which simplifies the editing of content. In the meantime, however, there are many alternatives that make it possible to use a visual editor in Magento Open Source. One of these solutions is Storyblok. Actually a separate CMS, it can be used in Magento with the help of the Storyblok integration developed by Javier Villanueva & Media Lounge. Why do we mention it here? Because it also works in a Hyvä Themes based frontend without any customisation.
Hyvä Themes as topicIn the current episode of MageChat, Hyvä Themes is one of the topics discussed. Hyvä is also a topic in other podcasts and conversations, such as the Talk Commerce series.
Check out EPISODE 1 of my new series Talk Commerce! I was joined by fellow Magento Master Jisse Reitsma to discuss all things frontend! We compared PWA Studio to Vue Storefront to the new Hyvä theme for Magento 2! WATCH THE FULL VID: https://t.co/n4fDZaGTox pic.twitter.com/UwIYcMRNK2— Brent W. Peterson (@brentwpeterson) March 8, 2021
New features for Hyvä AdminVinai Kopp (who recently joined the integer_net team) is currently working on simplifying the creation of forms in the Magento backend with Hyvä Admin. The open source module Hyvä Admin already allows tables to be generated in the Magento backend much more easily than before. The form functionality that also belongs to Hyvä Admin is currently in the works.
New online shops with Hyvä ThemesA few days after the release of Hyvä Themes, our team was able to launch another online shop with Hyvä Themes as the frontend. We have now implemented three online shops with Hyvä Themes. The fourth shop will follow in a few weeks.
Other agencies have not remained inactive either. The list of Hyvä showcases continues to grow.
