From the makers of Windy, comes Tint, the color picker for TailwindCSS developers. But it’s not like any other color picker out there, no sir, this thing automatically takes the color of whatever you have your cursor on and translates it to the nearest Tailwind CSS color. It’s macOS for now and supports Tailwind v1, v2 and v2 extended color palettes.
