Discussion on: Why Tailwind Isn't for Me

Very interesting post.

And as an added bonus, writing all your CSS files with @apply everywhere basically means you're not learning and authoring CSS. You're authoring Tailwind.

Undeniably. I think it's a niche market, and indeed, you must know CSS before using it. To me, it's just a tool, lighter than bootstrap, that can help you delivering. For now, I consider it as a nice solution when I lack time.

Nobody forces you, and if you (I'm not referring to anyone here) read and see it at face value, or if you use it everywhere, just for the sake of using it, then it's just hype, then you cannot be more wrong.

Agree with you on the div/span-tag soup too. It is a concern.
