Tailwind is overrated

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/webdev

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • emmet

    The essential toolkit for web-developers

    I absolutely hate it.. been using https://emmet.io/ forever and Tailwind is a huge step back when it comes to clean, maintainable code.

  • twin.macro

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

    My company uses Twin Macro, which uses babel to compile our tailwind into CSS classes with Emotion or Styled Components depending on the project. The class names look like .css-${uuid()}, whic h takes care of your dom element class names. You can also still give your components separate class names if you like for tagging, too.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • Tailwind CSS

    A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.

    The tailwind homepage has a great example of this with their demo. https://tailwindcss.com/
