We also got a new Tailwind UI update too! The team:

toast.log is a chrome (and firefox!) extension that shows your browser’s console messages like toast notifications. See errors, warnings, and logs as they happen on your site — without having to open the browser’s console. I find it incredibly useful when doing my frontend work! Check it out here.

📚 Learning

Create Responsive Image Effects With CSS Gradients And aspect-ratio

Following the whole I-want-you-to-level-up-your-CSS-skills theme, I bring you another great article, this one shows you how to do incredibly cool effects for your images, which can easily be added to complement your Tailwind project. If you work a lot with images, then this is definitely a great read.

💅 Showcase

Home – Alex Perronnet

Yet another portfolio site, but there’s a catch! You may think this site is a bit simple and minimalistic but the special feature is not the design, it’s the sound effects. That’s right, the awesome Alex added sounds effects and subtle animations to the hover and click states of some of the elements. Kind of like discovering some easter eggs, very cool!

For the curious:

🎁 Resource

tailwindcss-scroll-snap

If you don’t know what Scroll Snap is you’re missing a great CSS feature that was only previously possible with JS. It is great for scrolling effects and especially useful for sliders/carousels. This little plugin adds that functionality to your tailwind project, pretty handy.

At Tailwind Made, we recently launched our latest template, Atlas! Atlas is perfect for that personal blog you always wanted to start. It has a dark mode, a configured typography plugin, and it’s fully responsive. We also have a legal/business and an e-commerce template if you’re interested.

Imagine if you could go to any website, find a section/element you like, and get the approximate tailwind values to code it yourself. Like that idea? Then Windy is for you, the tool is still in its early stages but it looks very promising.

Polypane is a great tool for testing your project’s responsive design and accessibility. I use this daily for my frontend work and its 👌. If you sign up using this link you’ll get 20% off your subscription applied at checkout.
