    🦹‍♂️ Twin blends the magic of Tailwind with the flexibility of css-in-js (emotion, styled-components, stitches and goober) at build time.

    You can use tailwind utility classes in your emotion/styled components with tailwind macros (https://github.com/ben-rogerson/twin.macro). By doing so you get a design system for free that you can incorporate basically any workflow without much effort.

  • GitHub repo chakra-ui

    ⚡️ Simple, Modular & Accessible UI Components for your React Applications

    However, I lately came around to appreciate this style of code but not in Tailwind but in Chakra. In React this feels really sensible, where you can wrap your presentational components in providers and containers and it all just works fantastically well. Chakra is still ways away from being a 100% no brainer but it already builds on the foundation that Tailwind made soooo much better, and there is really no reason to use Tailwind if you have a React app.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo Tailwind CSS
