Tailwind Weekly #111: new upcoming Tailwind CSS book, preorders open! πŸ“˜

Hello folks!

It's been a quiet week on the Tailwind ecosystem but the Tailwind Labs team has been hard at work on Tailwind UI adding tons of new components behind the scenes. I think Tailwind UI is just getting better and better!

Now onto our usual content πŸ˜‰.

Our friend Shruti, the author of the popular Complete Guide to CSS Flex and Grid book it's now writing another book (and video course), and this time it's all about Tailwind CSS πŸš€

I personally read her first book and it was full of great tips about Flexbox and CSS Grid, even though I have been coding CSS for 10 years now I did learn quite a few things from it.

The book and video course are coming in July but you can pre-order them today at a discount. It even supports purchase power parity so you will pay less depending on where you live. A win-win for sure!

Satori's a library that helps you to create SVGs from HTML/CSS. A popular use case for it is programmatically creating social media images and the part is that it has Tailwind CSS support, albeit experimental. If you have a blog or content-heavy website and want to generate your social media images then you should play around with Satori.
