4 Must-Have VSCode Extensions for TailwindCSS

TailwindCSS is a utility-first CSS framework that has been rapidly gaining popularity. One of its many advantages is how quickly developers can implement beautiful designs. The following VSCode extensions can make you even more productive with Tailwind.

1. Tailwind CSS IntelliSense

This extension provides autocomplete, syntax highlighting, and linting for Tailwind classes. With this extension, there is no need to memorize the exact spelling of all the utility classes or to spend the time typing them out.

2. Tailwind CSS Explorer

Get a full list of all of the Tailwind classes available in your project in the sidebar of your editor. Click on any of the classes to instantly insert it into your code.

3. Tailwind Docs

Docs are a developer's best friend, and Tailwind has some great ones. Easily search for anything in the Tailwind docs directly from VSCode, and it will open to the exact page of the docs you need.

4. Headwind

Headwind is an opinionated class sorter that automatically organizes your class names on save. We all know utility frameworks come with long lists of class names. This extension will keep your sorting consistent and automatically remove any accidental duplicate class names.
