    As you can see from the above code, we have separate css for each value of padding. So instead of defining css manually everytime, you can simply define these helper css or use an existing css utility framework. I've been working with a lot of such utitlity frameworks, and people have their own utilty css'. Some of the famous css utility frameworks are Tailwind Css, Windi Css and Tachyons etc. So basically these utility frameworks will have a list of helper classes which provide basic css functionalities.
  • I've started breaking tailwind classes into multiple lines and feel like this is much easier to read than having all the classes on one line. Does anyone else do that? Any drawback to it?

    Functional CSS is grand. I haven't really enjoyed tailwind the times I've used it (I prefer to run my own custom build of tachyons.io) but on large projects it can be cumbersome when every element has its own style.

    If you feel tailwind is a bit much, I recommend tachyons.io. It's a bit tamer and there's a build that uses css variables. Pull it from https://github.com/allancole/tachyons-custom/tree/fix/issue-14-undefined-variables as the main repo is busted. BUT the idea is that you take it and build your own.
  • Notes on Modern UI Development

    For styling the application I needed to see what the recommendations were and while some people seemed to favour the css only route, I added Tailwind due to extensive documentation and examples. It suits the requirements and always liked the ideas in Tachyons. Furthermore it helped with learning some modern CSS, due being able to inspect the actual CSS of a class name.

    If you’d rather use Bulma or Tachyons in your spreadsheet-enabled apps, go right ahead! SpreadJS will work happily with either of them.
  • Ask HN: What's is your go to toolset for simple front end development?

    For those recommending Tailwind, it's huge if you're using it from the CDN (318K uncompressed).

    Other tools (except for Tachyons, these are maybe out of scope for a home lab):

    - Tachyons [0] is a small (16K-ish) utility class framework.

    - DaisyUI [1] is a free and open source component lib for Tailwind.

    - WindiCSS [2] is built on Tailwind with some additional features.

    - UnoCSS [3], an interesting on-demand atomic CSS engine that supports Tailwind CSS, WindiCSS, Bootstrap, and Tachyons.

  • What CSS framework should I learn for 2022

    If you do go the atomic CSS route though, I'd check out tachyons over tailwind.
  • Additive styling with Crayons
    3 projects | dev.to | 19 May 2022
    The Crayons CSS utils follows a standard convention for the class names. All the class names are prefixed with fw- which is a shorthand notation for Freshworks. Apart from this it follows a simple and intuitive conventions for the class names like p for padding, m for margin and so on. It is something similar to other css utility libraries like Tailwind, Tachyons and the others.
  • Tailwind vs Sass/SCSS: Structure and Consistency over Style and Comfort
    4 projects | dev.to | 10 Mar 2022
    Atomic CSS is more of an architectural philosophy rather than one particular library or framework. Notably, Tailwind wasn’t the first on the atomic CSS scene. There are other libraries that adopt the atomic CSS pattern like Tachyons.
