How did the Hyvä Themes come about?
By studying the market, the Hyvä team identified the main challenges and pains of such Magento frontend solutions as Luma and headless PWA and was able to develop a solution that helps solve these problems for merchants and agencies of all sizes.
As Hyvä says itself: “Hyvä is not revolutionary. Hyvä is not built to become a hype. One could say that Hyvä is the version of Luma we wished Magento had built. Or the frontend that Luma potentially could have become.”

What are users' opinions about Hyvä Themes?
Hyvä overrides *all* template files, but none only for styling reasons.— Vinai ???? (@VinaiKopp) April 14, 2021
It’s a completely rebuilt theme implementation.
That’s how the markup, css and JS can be so much better: it doesn’t carry all the legacy of luma.
Hyvä Themes compatibility
Hyvä is already compatible with a wide range of extensions. You can check all the compatible modules with the public compatibility tracker and vote for those extensions you want to have compatibility with.
