Tailwind is picking up a lot of traction, but it's such a different way of doing CSS that it needs its own article tbh


ya but tailwind CSS is a lightweight CSS framework and above all framework is advance and so many components with a large collection of utility class. but ya but don't worry about it we will write about it. :)


Thanx @muhammad to asking the question. ya, 100coconuts is using the tweenmax JavaScript library. This is an advanced sequencing tool that has awsome effects of html5 and css3 animations.

if you want to use these animation effects and you want a make your website more attractive you can visit an official website and read the full documentation.



Nice post! One thing tho: are you sure that Semantic UI is a good option here? I just checked their github page and their last commit was on Oct 21, 2018.


ya I am sure about Semantic UI because this framework has lots of UI-components. even we also like one feature of this framework is the loader. This framework has own custom loader we really like this and yea their have lots of elements to use.


I would also not recommend Semantic UI because there is no ongoing development.

I would recommend Fomantic UI (fomantic-ui.com/) it`s a fork of Semantic UI to continue the development.


Fomantic UI is similar like a Semantic UI ya but, Fomantic ui have more components as a compare to Semantic. but again we have to say Semantic is more popular. so we suggest you Semantic UI.


Great Article !
