10 Open Source Libraries for Tailwind CSS Components

Orginally published at Medium on Feb 8th 2020.

TailwindCSS is a revolutionary design framework that has attracted both diehard fans and critics. Fans love its speed, simplicity, and powerful building capabilities. Critics hate its bloated HTML design. Regardless of which side you are on, Tailwind has caused a significant shift in the developer community.

Building beautiful websites has never been easier.

If you enjoy building web applications with Tailwind, it gets even better when leveraging pre-built components and pages. Tailwind UI is the (partially paid) masterpiece by the founders of Tailwind. If, however, you are looking for more free alternatives, the Tailwind community has your back. The components and templates below enable you to easily copy and paste the HTML into your own project without any dependencies.
