What are your thoughts on Tailwind CSS?

Is Tailwind changing the way we think about css?

I think it is great, I like the utility-first approach as I find it more customizable.
Overall I prefer writing my CSS myself.
In the past I have found myself using Tailwind/Bootstrap for some larger-level layouts then writing my own CSS for smaller components other wise the HTML can become too bulky.

Do you use @apply? I have found it is very useful for smaller components.

I haven’t used it in Tailwind - only with Sass.
But I’ve just had a read of it in the Tailwind docs and does seem useful!
This would help with the issue of having too many classes on an element in the html file

Not my cup of tea. I use angular a lot and don't like adding even more to the HTML besides the bindings.

Can see the beauty of it, just not for me 😊
