Shadows is the development framework on which all Miva ReadyThemes are built.

The framework is designed to be used as a foundation for building custom websites or your own ReadyThemes. While the core of the framework is a tested, CSS base, we also include quality tested JavaScript functionality and extensions like tabs, accordions, carousels, and more.


Includes the necessary building blocks to create many of the common UX design patterns. Unique components can easily be created by extending the framework.


Developed with the BEMIT methodology in mind. BEM promotes component modularity, IT helps control the architecture, and ECSS helps to make extending the framework more manageable.

Modern Layout

Shadows is an evergreen-browser framework with a modern Flexbox layout system. No more having to remember to clear your floats or use conditional classes.

Refined Checkout

Shadows offers a stylized and streamlined checkout process.

Customer Dashboard

The account landing page has been styled to give returning customers more, 'at-a-glance', information. Customers will be able to see recent orders, wish list items, saved credit cards, and much more.

Browser Support

Shadows uses current coding structures and standards. This framework may not be best suited for you if you are looking to support legacy browsers.
