Discussion on: Why I use Tailwind CSS instead of Bootstrap

Never was a fan of Tailwind or any other low-level CSS frameworks. Maybe it doesn't fit the projects I'm currently working on. But.. I don't understand that cliche "you don't have to be a CSS expert". What does it mean exactly? That you don't need to learn all of the property names? That' s true, but instead you have to learn all the Tailwinds custom classes that represent that properties. Tailwind is all about workflow, it doesn't add or subtract anything to or from CSS. It is a rewrite of CSS.

Btw, when did we start calling CSS a vanilla CSS?

You don't have to be an expert in CSS, to use tailwind. CSS original name if you look it up is Vanilla CSS. Anything else
