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.
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.
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.
Hyvä Themes is not based on Magento’s default Luma. It is completely rewritten with modern a UI framework. The results are astonishing UI with a better page score.
Moreover, moving to Hyvä Themes is a re-theming project. Most of your existing functionality will work as is – until a module was written to be dependent on the older theme. A large website was moved by our partners Aureate Labs in under 3 months.
