Tailwind Weekly #123: Tailwind UI launched a new "Studio" template 🎨

Hello folks!

Say hello to the new "Studio" template for Tailwind UI. Steve calls it "their largest yet" and it looks AWESOME! Check out below for more info.

Also, the Tailwind Connect keynote video just reached 100k views! If you're interested in the future of Tailwind CSS then I highly recommend you watch it, it also has great production value and the demos were incredible.

Now onto our usual content πŸ˜‰.

🌟 News

The new Studio template (see preview) is aimed at development studios and agencies that want to have a clean and beautiful website to showcase their project and case studies. It even says that you can even tell people we were the ones who stole the design from you 🀣.

Like all the other Tailwind UI templates, it was made using Next.js and MDX, and all the animations are made with Framer Motion to add a nice touch.

Dismissing a Radix Dialog after a form submission

Here's another great video from Sam Selikoff, the "new Youtube sensation" as per Adam Wathan's words. This video is part of a series where Sam shows best practices when coding with Radix and Tailwind CSS but even if you don't use Radix you can definitely gain something by watching this series. I particularly loved the disabled fieldset trick for managing the loading state, that was 🀯.

Why custom properties don't work with the url() CSS function

Now that CSS custom properties have been out for a while and people are using them all around, you sometimes find "bugs" or surprising behavior like the one explained in this piece. Lucky for all of us, it's an easy fix!

Conditional CSS with :has and :nth-last-child

After watching the Tailwind Connect keynote video last week and seeing the power of the upcoming :has support in Tailwind CSS I'm now reading a lot of articles about :has in a whole new light and thinking on how to translate them to Tailwind CSS. Β This one is from one of my favorite CSS bloggers and shows a multitude of use cases for pairing :has Β and the :nth-last-child selector. Definitely a great read!

πŸ’… Showcase


This week's showcase is yet another example that you can make simple and familiar layouts look AWESOME if you just customize them a bit. This site looks like it was made straight out of Tailwind UI components but they have their own personality and their animations and interactivity make them shine. Also, that blue gradient looks lovely 😻.

Become a Pro at building components & layouts with CSS Flexbox and Grid with the Complete Guide to CSS Flex and Grid ebook by Shruti Balasa. I actually read this book and LOVED IT. I have been using flexbox and CSS grid for years and I still learned quite a few things from the book. β€Œ

Polypane is an excellent tool for testing your project’s responsive design and accessibility. The best thing about it is that it helps me catch visual bugs in seconds rather than hours. Definitely worth the money for the time I have saved.

I highly recommend LambdaTest as your cross-browser testing tool, with it you can test on IE11, Safari, and most mobile browsers, it also has a very easy-to-use interface, it’s very fast, and they have a lot of automated testing features too.

Caleb Porzio's ​Make VS Code Awesome course is an excellent course on customizing and improving your VS Code experience. I bought it recently and it completely changed how I set up and use VS Code, for the better!
