Compiling Tailwind CSS components in monorepo

If you have monorepo with Tailwind CSS components in one package and application in the other you may find that Tailwind won't work for components. To fix that you need to add new entry to content inside tailwind.config.js:

/** @type {import('tailwindcss').Config} */
module.exports = {
  content: [
    "../../packages/ui/**/*.{js,ts,jsx,tsx}", // here is path to Tailwind CSS components package
  theme: {
    extend: {},
  plugins: [],
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I fixed with this glob "**/src/**/*.{js,ts,jsx,tsx}" an placed this config file on a tailwind package that can be shared with all the packages and apps that follow this path.

Thanks so much. I spent some time searching, using chatGPT, gemeni with no help, but I found this article from Google search and the solution you provided works very well.
