I did a couple of silly memes for comiCSS:

Grid with 9 boxes with a word and a browser logo. The sentence reads: 'Thank you for building faster internet for everyone'. The center panel (with the IE logo) reads 'not you'


Grid with 9 panels with CSS and styling technology logos. Each logo has a word that form the sentence 'Thank you for making web styling better for everyone' except TailwindCSS logo (in the center) with the sentence 'not you'

Controversial to be pro bootstrap but anti tailwind 😅

Yeah, I disagree hard, but that's why this is somewhere between bold take and shit post and I'm not sure.

A little bit of both. Just in good fun.

But in a more serious note, Bootstrap may be considered "bad" now, but it has done more for web development and styling than Tailwind has done (and ever will?). Bootstrap may be boring and all the sites look the same, but it brought web styling to people that didn't know how to do it, not only for developers but for anyone building a website (something that is reflected in an estimated 20% of the sites using Bootstrap). Tailwind brings "easier" styling only to developers, it has a learning curve that non-developers cannot/don't want to assume, and it's more niched in that way (according to Google only a 0.5% of the sites use it, but it's an unfair comparison considering release dates). IMHO developers will eventually move on from Tailwind... and it will be in part because many of the things that are considered pros now, will be considered cons later. But I'm probably wrong anyway.

Tis but a joke. Lately, I have been making some fun of Tailwind because it seems to be quite popular now (and their community takes jokes/criticism poorly, which is fun for me 😅)

I have +10 years with CSS and I still still struggle trying to understand why people love Tailwind so much.

I started to like it once I realized I don't have to jump around between HTML and CSS files so much. But they way my code looks with tailwind is still irritating.

I believe there is an extension to hide Tailwind code... still then... I get your point, it is hard to organize large CSS code files... probably the sweet spot I've found here is with Svelte where you can have your HTML, CSS and JS in the same file. In any other case, to make this pain point less hurtful, I would organize my code in different files, use imports and split my IDE to work CSS aside and HTML on the other.

Any experienced frontend developer will never use Tailwind CSS.

Much like a frog confined to its well, you seem content to believe the world revolves solely around your limited perspective. Perhaps it's time to venture beyond the well and discover the vastness that awaits beyond its confines!

And let me tell you, using Tailwind CSS is like shedding a hundred-kilogram weight from your back and soaring at supersonic speeds, leaving Bootstrap trailing far behind!

I have over 20 years work experience in software development, 15 years working with web technologies, I've programmed in C/C++, SQL, Java, VB.Net, C#, PHP, HTML, CSS, JS, Bootstrap, jQuery, ASP, React, JSP, and Tailwind (yes)... just to name a few. In these two decades, I've done front end and back end, databases, worked with the operating system, APIs, the cloud... I've basically done anything and everything a developer could do (which is a problem, but that's a different story)... I've been in startups, small companies, huge corporations... I've been a junior, a senior, a staff developer, a team lead, an engineering manager. I've seen technologies come and go... but please, do tell me how my world and perspective is limited and how I need to venture beyond what I've done.

Don't do this with tailwind ....
It's my fav now (but not better that normal CSS. It's best as a CSS Framework )

In reality it's always "error on line 1" (of the minified one-line version of several hundreds or thousands of original lines of code)

Keanu Reaves (the man in the photo) plays the character John Wick in a series of movies. Totally worth the watch if you're into action flicks!
