  • Adds an extra syntax over CSS (@apply etc)
  • Requires specific CSS pipeline (postcss)
  • Requires CSS tree-shaking

Not a problem on a new project. But definitely not the most transparent build.

Do the other CSS frameworks require a build step? Imagine if every JS framework required an additional babel plugin. Adding extra webpack plugin IS complicated, compared to adding an HTML tag.
