Hyvä compatibility - native or legacy?

Hyvä compatibility - native or legacy?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on December 23, 2021

Hyvä is on the rise. And not for no reason, it offers an exciting frontend framework for Magento 2 with excellent performance out-of-the-box. One of the reasons that Magento has grown popular is its huge collection of extensions. So it is not strange to ask whether third party modules work with Hyvä or not. If yes, this brings up a vital question whether that compatibility is due to native support or legacy fallback - which to me is a huge difference. Let me bash the legacy fallback.

Introducing Yireo On-Demand Phase II

Introducing Yireo On-Demand Phase II

Written by Jisse Reitsma on December 14, 2021

Did you know that the name Yireo was loosely based on the word video? At the beginning of Yireo, there was an idea to sell videos but this idea was never realized. But end of last year (2020), phase I was completed with two video courses. And I'm proud to say that "phase II" is now as good as finalized as well. And it is definitely not only about videos.

Written by Jisse Reitsma on October 15, 2021

Reacticon 4 is done. And I'm happy with how it went: Four days, 31 speakers, all online via YouTube stream and Slack space. And the content ruled. Here is my (rather detailed) personal summary of all days.

Here and back again - the Magento Open Letter

Here and back again - the Magento Open Letter

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 20, 2021

Everyone is writing about the open letter to the Magento community. I guess it is because it requires this much attention: The open letter to the Magento community is important if you care about Magento. Well, I got an opinion too! Here is my vision and my personal thoughts on what to do next. O and a mention of Reaction, which seems like an obligation.

Magento for haters

Magento for haters

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 26, 2021

Love it or hate it, Magento is today still one of the leading applications when it comes to open source e-commerce. Its ecosystem is huge, it’s flexibility overwhelming, its complexity staggering and therefore, its name is often referred to as the best or the worst you can encounter in the PHP world. However, instead of repeating what others are saying about Magento, let’s have an open look at what Magento has to offer - pointing out the good, the bad and the ugly parts.

Removing PageBuilder from Magento 2.4.3 again

Removing PageBuilder from Magento 2.4.3 again

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 17, 2021

Magento 2.4.3 was released just a week ago (or so). And it shipped with one big surprise: PageBuilder. Magento already announced that it would be released for Open Source users, but I always thought that would be against a fee. But instead, PageBuilder is now available for everyone for free. Awesome. So let's remove it again.

Vue Single File Components for Shopware 6

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 6, 2021

Shopware 6 ships with Vue, so people say. But as soon as they find out that Shopware implements Vue a bit differently, they start wondering why you can't use Vue SFC (Single File Components). Well, you can. Here's what, why and how.

Written by Jisse Reitsma on July 9, 2021

In October 2021, the fourth Reacticon will take place, focused on Magento & Shopware frontending. This is the place to be (online) if you want to learn more about where frontending will head next. And because Magento PWA Studio is definitely part of that story, we dedicate a full day on it.

As an agency, you'll need to make sure that your developers are constantly learning: Technology is constantly on the move, so should the skillset of developers.

All-in-all, there needs to be a corporate strategy for learning, a policy to make sure skills are kept up-to-date Here's a sum up.

How to justify a Hyvä Themes License

How to justify a Hyvä Themes License

Written by Jisse Reitsma on June 29, 2021

The buzz is real: Hyvä Themes does make a difference. Where many were disappointed with the Magento 2 frontend (which didn't change for half a decade), Hyvä took everyone by surprise with its clean performant frontend. And there is a charge: You need to pay for a license to get the code. Let's discuss whether this license fee is justified or not.

Analysis of Shopware 6 its JavaScript usage

Written by Jisse Reitsma on June 14, 2021

Having worked with Shopware 6 now a bit, it is great to say that the default storefront (based on Twig and Bootstrap) performs quite well out of the box. But we can always to a bit better. So I sat down to review the JavaScript usage of Shopware 6. Here's the result of that analysis.

My ElasticSearch Docker setup for Magento 2

My ElasticSearch Docker setup for Magento 2

Written by Jisse Reitsma on June 11, 2021

With Magento 2.4, having ElasticSearch up and running became a requirement. In production, but also in development. For this, using Docker is great. However, I always am looking for cranking up the speed of Docker images locally, to allow for the best developer experience. Here's what I did with my Docker setup for Magento 2.
