How to create a child theme in Hyva Magento 2

In this article I’ll explain you How to create a child theme in hyva Magento 2. Hyva is most popular theme in Magento and it’s provide two themes Hyva Reset and  Hyva Default.

Hyva Reset theme provides an empty layout and minimal theme similar to Luma blank, while Hyva Default theme includes predefined layouts, sample data, and uses Hyva Reset theme as its parent theme. Hyva theme helps site owners to achieve good page score and decreased page loading time.

Hyvä uses modern front-end technologies and practices, moving away from the Knockout.js and RequireJS stack used by Magento’s default themes. This makes the theme more accessible to front-end developers familiar with contemporary web development tools.

There are two ways to create your own theme:

  • By creating a child theme like default Magento works
  • By duplicating hyva-themes/magento2-default-theme and modify that

In this blog, We will go for the first way so I’ll guide you through the process of creating a child theme in the Hyvä theme. While it closely aligns with the default Magento 2 method, there are a few additional steps unique to Hyvä that we will explore in detail.
