My issue with it is that it’s tied to Tailwind, What if I don’t want to use tailwind css. What if I prefer bootstrap or .....

With Tailwind UI being released primarily as a subscription service I won’t be using it.

So what’s the alternative, convert to Tailwind css or go without the functionality?

Well, if you need all this cool functionality, converting to TailwindCSS is the only option.
If you only need Authentication scaffolding with Bootstrap, you can still use "laravel/ui" package.

With Jetstream being open source, I think it's only matter of time before someone makes a package for Jetstream and Bootstrap too.

Personally I feel it should have been a built in option. Like many Laravel dev's I'm already productive with bootstrap, and looking forward to V5. My frustration is partly due as I'm about to starts a new project which was going to be in Laravel 8, and now I'm not sure. Don't really want to use a deprecated UI package and I'm not going to switch to Tailwind, Might just go with Vue and Adonis ?

Livewire looks good though, I could see me using that ;)
