What is Tailwind CSS?

Tailwind is different from frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, or Bulma in that it's not a UI kit. It doesn't have a default theme, and there are no build-in UI components. It comes with a menu of predesigned widgets to build your site with, but doesn't impose design decisions that are difficult to undo.
Tailwind CSS is a tool in the Front-End Frameworks category of a tech stack.
Tailwind CSS is an open source tool with 23.3K GitHub stars and 1.1K GitHub forks. Here鈥檚 a link to Tailwind CSS's open source repository on GitHub
