What is Tailwind CSS?

Tailwind CSS is a highly customizable, low-level CSS framework that enables developers to rapidly build custom designs without having to leave their HTML.

Unlike traditional CSS frameworks that come with a predefined set of components, Tailwind gives you utility classes that allow you to compose and create your designs directly in your markup. This approach makes Tailwind uniquely flexible and efficient, particularly for projects that require a bespoke UI without the overhead of overriding styles.

For Rails apps, Tailwind CSS can be seamlessly integrated. As of 2024, Tailwind CSS has seen widespread adoption due to its simplicity and power, with thousands of developers leveraging its approach to build responsive, mobile-first designs more quickly and with less effort.
