    dev.to | 2021-10-12

    headlessui might also be interesting for you, e.g. to create a menu (you're posting on r/vuejs afterall). Or perhaps Vuetify.

  • Separating Bootstrapping Functionality From Styling (Why You Might Not Want Material UI Or A Custom Solution)
    dev.to | 2021-08-28
    Headless UI by @tailwindlabs separates applying styles from encapsulating functionality via components.
  • Been using Vue for years professionally love it. But Svelte looks so good... What would I miss from Vue if I converted to Svelte?
    reddit.com/r/sveltejs | 2021-08-25
    I don’t like using component libraries such as Vuetify, especially since Svelte makes it so easy to write your own custom components, but when you want some help writing something like a custom Select without sacrificing accessibility (something like what Headless UI offers), your options in Svelte are quite limited.
  • I used to love Bootstrap. God, now I just hate it
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-08-24
    tailwind guys do a thing called headless ui https://headlessui.dev/ it has a toggle, you can take that and customise it how you want.
  • My favorite stack for web applications, and why I use it
    dev.to | 2021-08-18
    For the frontend, React is a must for me. I don't like any other frontend frameworks/libraries except React (just my own opinion). With React, I use URQL or Apollo client as the GraphQL client. Also, I forgot to mention that this will all be in TypeScript (because types are OP). UI-wise, I use Tailwind CSS, and Headless UI (Tailwind components for React, Vue, etc).
  • Why is tailwind so popular?
    reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-08-15
    Tailwind also pairs well with component-based UI frameworks like React, Vue, and Svelte because the "HTML bloat" that others have mentioned is mitigated to an extent when you have separate reusable components. There's also https://headlessui.dev/ which is a set of React and Vue components (think thins like dropdowns, modals, etc) designed specifically for use with Tailwind and maintained by the Tailwind team.
  • How to use async functions in useEffect (with examples)
    reddit.com/r/reactjs | 2021-08-14
    Thanks a lot! I'm using tailwindcss and headless UI for the styling. Otherwise it's a nextjs app :)
  • What do you use for models and other components when using tailwindcss for styling for a react project?
    reddit.com/r/reactjs | 2021-08-13
    As the other commenter said, headless UIis quite useful for "standard" components. Although its API isn't always the best IMO.
