Tailwind is a utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom user interfaces.
Tailwind is different from frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, or Bulma in that it’s not a UI kit.
It doesn’t have a default theme, and there are no built-in UI components.
On the flip side, it also has no opinion about how your site should look and doesn’t impose design decisions that you have to fight to undo.
If you’re looking for a framework that comes with a menu of predesigned widgets to build your site with, Tailwind might not be the right framework for you.
But if you want a huge head start implementing a custom design with its own identity, Tailwind might be just what you’re looking for.
Creating a framework for building custom UIs means you can’t provide abstractions at the usual level of buttons, forms, cards, navbars, etc.
Instead, Tailwind provides highly composable, low-level utility classes that make it easy to build complex user interfaces without encouraging any two sites to look the same.
