Building Minimal Responsive Signup Page with TailwindCSS

Recently, I have been working in front-end web development that eluded me a lot during my early days of development and shifted to mostly backend API development.

Then I came along with the @TailwindCSS Frontend Framework.
The framework website states that:

A utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom designs.


So what tailwindCSS does is that don’t go to CSS file to make changes but to use classes in HTML for styling. Also, it is much easier to learn even compared to simple CSS.

You can learn more about how to use tailwindCSS is with screencasts made by tailwindCSS own creator @adamwathan here.

BootstrapCSS VS TailwindCSS

BootstrapCSS is a component-based framework in which we have to override the existing classes which cause the uses to be freakishly complex and also the component integration with VueJS (which I use mostly) is almost impossible and the size of CSS also increase vastly.

While, TailwindCSS is a low size cost with the usage of PostCSS, and if the developer knows the basics of CSS then it is as easy as pie.

My designed SignUp Page

Below is the pen, where I created a responsive minimalistic signup form using the tailwindCSS CDN version which can be heavy as postcss could not be used while in the project we can use postcss and with VueJS animations, the final project becomes low-size, great and responsive.
