Discussion on: My mixed feelings about Tailwind CSS

TailwindCSS solves a lot of problems for a lot of developers. That's great! But I'm not so keen on using it because I prefer to just use custom CSS. But if I needed to reach for a library I'd probably go with Tailwind.

I get why it's helpful for many people. I really appreciate that. Personally, I'd prefer to know CSS deeply and just use my own styles. That way I can use raw css, scss, styled-components, etc.

I like how you went custom and made your own tool! To me, that's more interesting because there's the opportunity to allow customization of CSS before it reaches the .css file. Facebook has an interesting custom solution that compiles down to raw CSS but removes any clashing styles and dead css.
