  • Fixing Class Composition in Tailwind CSS
    10 projects | | 14 Dec 2022
    One of the more promising alternatives is twin.macro - a Babel macro that processes Tailwind classes to generate JS objects understandable by various CSS-in-JS libraries. The developer experience (DX) of using it is amazing as you not only get all of Tailwind’s features without much change to your code, but you also get much more flexibility - all that on top of the traditional benefits of CSS-in-JS. Here’s an example code:
  • Jest Error in a NextJS project. babel-jest is unable to find my babel.config.js
    2 projects | /r/node | 9 May 2022
    MacroError: The macro you imported from "undefined" is being executed outside the context of compilation with babel-plugin-macros. This indicates that you don't have the babel plugin "babel-plugin-macros" configured correctly. Please see the documentation for how to configure babel-plugin-macros properly:
