Tailwind Weekly #39: a video, a book and a sneak peek!
By Vivian Guillen • Issue #39 • View online
Hello folks!
This week we got a video, on how to use the new line-clamp plugin, a book, by the programmatic bookshelf folks, and a sneak peek, from Adam, as part of the next Tailwind UI update.
Also, NASA is using Tailwind 👀, we got a primer on the mysterious `clip-path` and I bet angular fans will be happy with this week’s resource. I hope you enjoy this week’s goodies!
Now, here’s this week’s sponsor:
⭐ 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.

Tailwind is getting so mainstream that we’re getting books about it now, check out The Pragmatic Bookshelf’s “Modern CSS with Tailwind”, the book is still in beta and around 75% but judging by the table of contents it looks like it will be very complete.
We mentioned the new official line-clamp plugin back in issue 36 but this week the Tailwind Labs team gave us a post and a video about it detailing more examples.
Adam also teased us with some upcoming application home examples for Tailwind UI, looks 👌.

Hey there, your favorite newsletter author, Vivian here 👋. Fun fact, I’m also a freelance front-end developer and I have some availability in February. I specialize in Tailwind (duh), Vue.js, and Alpine.js, among other things. If you’re looking for help for your next project I would love to talk. You can email me at vivian (at)
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.
I highly recommend LambdaTest as your cross-browser testing tool, with it you can test on IE11, Safari, and most mobile browsers, it also has a very easy to use interface, it’s very fast, and they have a lot of automated testing features too. You can use coupon code “TAILWIND15” for 15% off the annual plan.
Are you interested in an ad slot that reaches 1.1k+ people? Shoot me an email and let’s talk!
