I'm used to writing CSS using SCSS, mixins, and namespaced stored values, completely avoiding magic numbers.

The level of abstraction offered by TailwindCSS is very close to writing inline CSS, using "chunks" of properties vs. individual properties. With the drawback of having to learn a proprietary API.

I can see how it avoids the overhead of naming things but feels extremely verbose and repetitive to me.
