Tailwind CSS is a utility-first framework for rapidly building custom designs. This tutorial will teach your Tailwind from scratch.
During this course we will be exploring the features of Tailwind CSS. As a quick recap, Tailwind is a utility-first framework designed to speed up the design process by completely removing the need for custom CSS. In the past, every HTML element would get a single class and that class would contain a lot of custom CSS in a separate CSS file. Though this is still the general practice, this practice leads to huge CSS files, reduces the ease of maintaining CSS and yields overall poorer developer experience. Another advantage of a utility framework is its superior performance with caching due to not busting the cache for small CSS changes. Tailwind has been designed with incredible sensible defaults to make your designs look and feel "polished" and "designed" through the careful use of color palettes, color shades, sizing consistency and modern web best-practices. It's also worth noting, that Tailwind is mobile-first and has an easy naming convention with responsive designs built-in. Need some customizations? Tailwind's robust customization system will allow you to customize/tweak/modify everything in the framework through the use of the tailwind.config.js file.
Tailwind makes writing CSS easier and lets us customize our designs faster than any other CSS framework. If you want a CSS framework that has pre-built components, then Tailwind may not be for you. If you want a CSS framework that lets you design quickly and customize your site, then Tailwind is gonna be a lot of fun. The hardest things about learning Tailwind is memorizing the classes and also knowing which classes go well together. We'll be writing a lot of Tailwind in this course so that the repetition will help us commit Tailwind classes to memory.
