What is Tailwind CSS?

Tailwind is different from frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, or Bulma in that it's not a UI kit. It doesn't have a default theme, and there are no build-in UI components. It comes with a menu of predesigned widgets to build your site with, but doesn't impose design decisions that are difficult to undo.
Tailwind CSS is a tool in the Front-End Frameworks category of a tech stack.
Tailwind CSS is an open source tool with GitHub stars and GitHub forks. Here鈥檚 a link to Tailwind CSS's open source repository on GitHub

Hey guys! I found the service Shuffle (it uses the Tailwind CSS library) Can you please tell me if the code from it can be exported to Webflow without problems?

Thanks!

Hello, A question to frontend developers. I am a beginner on frontend.

I am building a UI for my company to replace old legacy one with React and this question is about choosing how to apply design to it.

I have Tailwind CSS on one hand and Ant Design on the other (I didnt like mui and Bootstrap doesn't seem to have enterprise components as ant) As far as I understand, tailwind is great. It allows me to literally build an application without touching the css but I have to build my own react components with it. Ant design or mantine has ready to use components which I can use and rapidly build my application.

My question is, is it the right approach to: - Use a component framework for now and replace legacy app. - Introduce tailwind later when I have a frontend resource in hand and then build own component library

Thank you.

Hi, I'm using Tailwind CSS for my project but I found Bootstrap and Semantic UI offering pre-built components like Model, Sidebars, and so forth. Is it possible to use Semantic UI or Bootstrap under Tailwind CSS?

I am stuck in between the two. Tailwind CSS seems trendy and modern. Bootstrap has a community and leads in responsiveness.

Good day. Tell me which CSS framework would be better to use for a blog (Django), my choice fell on these two frameworks. Will Bootstrap 5 (without jquery) heavily overload the site, unlike a Tailwind CSS?
