The mental gymnastics continues. I just don't get why people are so opposed to simply learning CSS instead of finding all these excuses to dump all of the styling in the markdown like it's 1990 or something.

Because naming is hard, less names written less time lost on frivolous names.

Naming is only hard when you're not really sure what it is you're naming

Learning CSS first is obviously a necessity, however Tailwind can help in writing frontend much faster. When using plain CSS, I've found that I am much less productive, spending time switching between files and editing. Tailwind can look pretty messy, but if your team knows it, I've found that it speeds up writing frontend very significantly.
