Tailwind Weekly #35: New Tailwind UI update, support coming to Codekit + more!
By Vivian Guillen • Issue #35 • View online
Hello folks!
Happy holidays to you all, I hope you all enjoy your time with your family and close ones. 2020 is FINALLY coming to an end.
And what best way to end the year than with a big Tailwind UI update! We got lots of updates, the Application UI package sure got some love 😄.
We’re also introducing our classifieds section at the bottom, right now I’m featuring some tools which I think will be very beneficial to frontend devs and people working with tailwind.
And last but not least, this is the last issue of 2020, We’ll be taking a 2-week break and we’ll come back in January 😁.
Now I’ll leave you to check this week’s sponsor and the usual goodies.
⭐ Polypane is a stand-alone browser for web developers and designers that makes you five times as productive and helps you build better websites and apps. I use this daily for my frontend work and its 👌. If you sign up using this link you’ll get 20% off your subscription applied at checkout.

We got a big Tailwind UI update yesterday! Here’s the new stuff:
The ecosystem is vibrant as ever too. Bryan Jones, the creator of Codekit, tweeted about TailwindCSS support coming for the tool very soon.
For the curious, Codekit is like a task Webpack but with a very good interface and at a very affordable price tag. If you don’t like the command line, you use a Mac and you do frontend work then you’ll probably love it.
And of course, we got new official TailwindCSS videos! From the channel:
Video of the week
TailwindCSS V2 | Dark mode
TailwindCSS V2 | Dark mode
Dark mode is all the rage these days and TailwindCSS now supports it natively with a few different methods.
But what if you have never implemented it before? This video is exactly what you need. It’s a bit long (~21m) but it covers the methods mentioned in the docs + a few more like using localstorage.
Showcase of the week
Acer Tree Services - Professional Tree Surgeons in Essex
Resource of the week

Classifieds of the week
Designing on your own and want fancy icons? Check out Iconfinder, they have the best selection of icons I have ever seen. All from different designers from around the world.
Imagine if you could go to any website, find a section/element you like, and get the approximate tailwind values to code it yourself. Like that idea? Then Windy is for you, the tool is still in its early stages but it looks very promising.
Are you on a Mac or Linux and are unfortunate enough to have to test on IE11? Or maybe you’re on Windows and need to test on Safari?
To both above, I highly recommend LambaTest, this is the cross-browser testing tool I use and I find the interface very easy to use plus they have a lot of automated testing features too.
