Hyas 2.0

Henk Verlinde Henk Verlinde — Product

We are thrilled to announce Hyas v2.0 — a code restructuring release, making Hyas more robust and flexible.

Hyas’ code base is now fully modularized. Main functionalities — for example Images and SEO — are now available as separate Hyas integrations, making them easier to maintain and update. The restructured Hyas makes it easier to build any website you want.

“Hyas is a web framework designed for speed, security, and SEO — all powered by Hugo and npm.”

Key features

  • Hugo powered: Fast website build times and flexible project organization.
  • Fully npm managed: Straightforward and easy dependency management.
  • Production-ready: Optimized for speed, SEO, and security.
  • Customizable: Tailwind, Images, and other integrations to choose from.
  • Development tools: Find and fix problems in scripts, styles, and markdown.
  • Deploy anywhere: Deployment guides to different deployment services.
