Tailwind Weekly #57: New Tailwind UI update, new stream and new videos!

Hello folks!

We got another packed issue ready for you to dig in! We have a Tailwind UI update, a new live coding stream from Adam, and very cool videos from Simon. Let’s get started!

PD: Sorry I missed last week, I got pretty sick and had to rest for a few days, all good now!

🌟 News

Lot’s news in this issue, let’s unpack:

  • Adam did a new stream! It’s been a while since Adam did one but this one is awesome. He’s building empty states for Tailwind UI (which you can check below).
  • We got another stream but from David, he’s building some components for the upcoming Ecommerce package.
  • Simon made 2 incredible videos, one for Floating Labels with TailwindCSS and one about Rebuilding iOS 15 with Tailwind CSS, both are excellent ways to learn how to use the newer features of tailwind

We also got a new Tailwind UI update! Here’s what’s new:

🎁 Resource

TailwindCSS Buttons

I discovered this a few days ago and just HAD to share it! The folks at Dev Dojo released a collection of unique button designs made with TailwindCSS and you can copy and paste any of them with just a click. I must say some of the designs are very creative so I really recommend you check it out.

Note: Some of these links are affiliate links, which means I get compensated in some way if you buy through them but I promise I only recommend products I really like!

We rebranded! Tailwind Made is now Red Pixel Themes 🥳! Check out our official blog post about the move. Our templates stay the same. We have portfolio, business, blog, and e-commerce templates if you’re interested.

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.

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.
