It was a pretty exciting week for the Tailwind Labs team with the first official Tailwind event being held a few days ago. Do check the news section for more info, we have pictures!
Now onto our usual content 😉.
P.S.: I apologize for the silence these last few weeks, I was neck-deep in work and dealing with some health issues but I'm as good as new now and back on track!
Tailwind Connect was held a couple of days ago and it went very well! I personally didn't attend it but from what I could tell from the pictures and twitter talk, it was a blast.
And speaking of pictures, here are a few of them I got from Twitter!
Besides that, here's what you may have missed since our last email:
:has(...)support is coming on the next version of Tailwind!
- We're also getting support for
text-wrapon the next release too.
- There's a new template coming soon! Looks to be an agency-focused template, and looks very cool

If you ever worked with forms then you know that sometimes
textareas are tricky. They behave like big, tall, and scrollable text inputs but sometimes that's not exactly what you want. This video tutorial teaches you how to fix the annoying scrollable issue by auto-resizing it with JS.
I heard of the term
block formatting context years ago on CSS tricks but never gave it enough attention. Until I read this article! This piece offers an elegant solution to a niche issue (float problems) but also teaches you what a block formatting context is and why you should care.
It's very common for modern CSS libraries that use custom properties (a.k.a variables) to put a lot if not most of them on the
:root selector and this article acknowledges that but also shows you an alternative to avoid having your
:root selector become overwhelming. A pretty specific issue but solvable!
Who would think a SQL editor would be so pretty 😍. PopSQL is a collaborative SQL editor for your team and its landing page is one of the best I have seen for a very technical's product. The typography is elegant, the colors are vibrant and the micro animations are eye-catching. The features' pages look even better!
I'm featuring new component libraries again and this week's is pretty cool!
rewind-ui is a React-based library with 25 ready-to-use components, separated into 2 categories, "Data display" and "Forms". I find the components intuitive, the docs have a lot of examples and the roadmap looks promising. Definitely, a library to keep an eye on.
