re: Tachyons, the best library you're not using. VIEW POST


I'm a big fan of Tailwind ( - similar to Tachyons but better imo.

I'd recommend this video to anyone interested in why you should switch to utility-first CSS -> (a talk given a couple months ago by a friend of mine).


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.
