When building for production, you should always use Tailwind's purge option to tree-shake unused styles and optimize your final build size. When removing unused styles with Tailwind, it's very hard to end up with more than 10kb of compressed CSS.

That's really handy.

I think we misunderstood what was needed, and then tried to work out how we'd apply it to our application structure. Ultimately we found a different one which would see us through the short-medium term which let us put in only the components we needed.

I'll have to give Tailwind a proper look over on a project at some point. It has the huge bonus of not being Bootstrap.
