andybroger profile image Andy Broger ・1 min read

Hey Folks,

First post and i don't like long intros, so mine will be short. Searched for next.js and tailwindcss templates, found a lot, some outdated, some without purging, some too much boilerplate stuff, etc.

So i created my own and here it is:

GitHub logo andybroger / nextjs-tailwindcss

nextjs + tailwindcss template

nextjs-tailwindcss template

next.js template including tailwindcss, check out the jsx-tailwind branch if you need support for @apply rules in styled-jsx.

Features

  • Includes Tailwindcss
  • Includes postcss-preset-env
  • now uses tailwindcss 1.4.x purge method on production builds

usage

  1. Clone this repo
  2. npm install
  3. npm run dev

notes

styles/main.css The styles/main.css files includes tailwindcss imports and also supports global styles. It is processed by postcss and with postcss-preset-env supports nesting and other cool stuff.

postcss.config.js The configuration file for postcss. The purgecss plugin is configured to scan the *.js files in the pages/ and components/ folder.

tailwind.config.js You should know that file, its the default config generated with npx tailwindcss init. It's where your tailwindcss config goes.

pages/_app.js Here we integrate styles/main.css into the app.
