Discussion on: Why Tailwind Isn't for Me

You had me at WebComponents and ShadowDOM. The creator of @apply revealed that it was poorly conceived. And I agree. I don't have a dog in the CSS FW fight because I don't use them. There are obviously lot's of folks that are fond of Tailwind, and that's fine. But I want to stay as close to the platform as possible. More generally, I think humans mostly overcomplicate CSS, and I frown on apps that need to build half the internet to function. My 10 cents.

I love CSS, and I genuinely have fun with it ^_^ For that reason alone, i will likely never use TW... I make my own utility classes that solve a common function, and use them where i feel is appropriate.
