I had the same experience, with tailwind. I used it only in small side projects, as for work I still rely on f6.
It definitely covers 90% up of css, and removing a constant rebuild of my sass it saves time over medium long term.
I see there are some differences, like default presets, namings. Is there some other major difference? Tachyons is ~10kb, while tw is ~60, is it just because the 50 colors of default?
I've actually never heard of tailwind, I'll check it out. From a quick glance it seems it might be the smaller class names (tachyons is abbreviated in almost all cases .ma3 for margin: 1rem; contributing to the lower bundle size.
Definitely implement purgecss to remove the unused classes from your completed markup, and you'll have only what you need!
