Thanks for your feedback. on moving to tailwind. I recently built my first app using tailwind and, even if I can't compare with previous numbers since it was not a rewrite, I also noted that the average pages payload is way lighter than other similar apps I built

Yeah I think they do a great job of allowing you to pull in just what you need and removing those you don't. They have some great docs on optimizing for file size (tailwindcss.com/docs/controlling-f...) and I think I read somewhere that almost all usages of the library can expect to have the payload <40 Kb which is extremely light compared to most UI libs these days.
