Improve page speed with Hyvä Themes

Modern Page Speed Metrics

Modern Page Speed Metrics as defined by Google are called “Core Web Vitals“.
This measure focusses on 3 aspects of user experience.

Largest Contentful Paint or LCP that measures loading performance.
Content Layout Shift or CLS that measures visual stability.
First Input Delay or FID that measures interactivity.

This obsoletes previous measures such as First Contentful Paint (FCP) or even Page load time reported by many measuring tools.

Core Web Vitals

Site speed has evolved and needs an evolution in the technology stack

The change in metrics means the technology stack has to evolve.
Many storefronts have adopted a more agile approach moving to a headless architecture.

Deploying headless adds complexity – for Magento stores, you now are dealing with two or more builds – Magento and headless. (Some headless stacks may need more builds). As a result, a headless stack is not for all stores.

There is nothing wrong with a monolithic stack – however, the Magento theme uses rather old technology that has aged.

The frontend technology world has accepted Adam Wathan‘s tailwind css as a great solution for both easing frontend development and improve page speed.

Much like jquery was the javascript library of choice for older UI, alpine.js is the library of choice for user interfaces developed using tailwaindcss.

What is Hyvä?

Hyvä Themes is a Magento theme based on tailwaindcss and alipe.js. Much like the Adam Wathan with tailwindcss, Willem Wigman the pioneer of Hyvä, believes in simplicity and componentization – making it ready for the future.

luroConnect partners with Hyvä

luroConnect will support Hyvä build as part of our standard Magento build process.
The luroConnect build is generally done in a dockerized container without access to the database. This ensures our build does not consume resources of the live site while running composer, di:compile and static:content:deploy commands. It also makes our build easy to deploy and rollback.

luroConnect is a Managed Hosting Platform for Magento – giving a development, staging and live environment on your cloud account. With infrastructure-as-code principle used in its stack and a CI/CD inbuilt into the platform, luroConnect gives unprecedented confidence of the hosting environment on any cloud (and coming soon on kubernetes).
