Tailwind Weekly #161: Tailwind UI now uses RSC, new heroicons & new template coming soon 🎁!

Hello folks!

It's the middle of summer, and we're excited to bring you the latest updates in the Tailwind CSS ecosystem.

The Tailwind Labs team was at Figma Config last week and they're still hard at work releasing stuff. We got React Server Components, new Heroicons and even a new template, not too shabby!

Now, let's dive in!

🌟 News

Tailwind UI React examples now use React Server Components


Since Server components don't support passing functions as props, the Tailwind Labs team decided to remove all render props and added data-* attributes for state management.

They also updated any components that do need to be client components to include 'use client' at the top of the example so that you can copy and paste them into your RSC project and they'll work right away.

New Heroicons batch and new Tailwind UI template


Steve mentioned he's working on the next batch of Heroicons which will include all the ones from the picture above "plus a bunch more that I'm still fine-tuning."


He's also adding the finishing touches to the next Tailwind UI template, which will ship in the coming days.

πŸ’… Showcase


Tuple is the best tool for remote pair programming I have ever used, and they recently redesigned their site. The first thing you see is the clean, crisp design with plenty of white space that makes the interface look crisp and elegant. The subtle color gradient in the background gives it a modern and fresh look. The screenshots showcase a sleek and intuitive interface that will make coding with your team a breeze.

Honestly, the new redesign is lovely and really showcases how great the tool is.

DynaUI is a component library with a rich collection of 50+ animated components built with React, Tailwind CSS, and Framer Motion. It has great documentation and even 3 templates (Saas, Agency, and Portfolio) so you can see the components in action. I honestly love the component animations, they feel really smooth and unique!
