Updated 29 December 2023

This installation process is only for the technology partners of the Hyvä Themes. If you don’t know what is Hyvä then please read this blog Hyvä  Themes – The optimized theme for Magento 2


  • Magento 2.4.0 CE or higher
  • A valid license for Hyvä Themes, please view
  • For licensees: A Private Packagist Key
  • For partners: Access to Hyvä Gitlab

System Requirements

  • The system requirements depend on the versions of Magento and TailwindCSS in use
  • A node version 12.13.0 + on development instance to run the tailwind compiler. I recommend creating the bundle on development or staging instance, not on production.
  • The system requirements for Magento can be found in the devdocs.
