We want to improve our services to you. For those who choose not to be limited by the default Magento 2 theme, but to use a faster and supreme frontend, we prepared tips to start with integration.

What's a front we talk about? As you may see in the title, this is the Breeze frontend for Magento 2. Many users already united their websites with Breeze to get closer to the best performance. Still the reminder what is Breeze and how it’s working.

We invite everyone for Breeze collaboration. Integrating your theme or extension with our revolutionary solution will give you more flexibility in how you interact with your customers and rank up highly on Google. Here we suggest you get involved with Breeze Magento 2 themes quickly and easily.

Breeze repositories are public

First of all you have to know that we are opening repositories for public submissions. You can find them at https://github.com/breezefront/. Once your products go well with Breeze, you can share your integration project by adding a link to the Breeze page or even add integration to our repository.

Integration to Breeze is as easy as possible

When it comes to third-party modules, Breeze is highly compatible with blank/luma modules out of the box since we use the same page structure, blocks, layout updates, and templates for almost all of the pages. You only need to convert CSS styles, HTML templates and javascript.

When writing module for the Breeze frontend you may want to create layout updates, add your own styles to the Breeze-based theme, or add custom styles to the email templates. Your actions will affect Breeze-based theme only and will not change anything in Blank/Luma themes. Discover more details at https://breezefront.com/custom-module.

Brief instructions for integration

To avoid duplicating existing styles or javascript code just to make your module compatible with another frontend, look at some tricks.

To reuse styles from _module.less:

  • Add @import instruction into breeze/_default.less
  • Declare @critical variable in source/_module.less to prevent error in Luma theme
  • Wrap your styles into @critical guards
  • Add missing variables to breeze/_default.less. This step is optional

To reuse js widgets:

When your module has simple widget for Luma theme, you can slightly modify it to make it compatible with both Luma and Breeze. Click here to see compatible codes.
