Tailwind Weekly #60: new video and new milestone!

Hello folks!

It’s been a quiet week on the news front while Adam and the rest of the team take a breather after the release of the Ecommerce package for Tailwind UI. What a launch 🚀.

But don’t fret, as always, we got new stuff for you 😉!

P.D. We also reached a new milestone recently, we now have more than 2k followers on twitter, thank you all ❤️.

🌟 News

The Tailwind Labs team might be taking a breather but Simon gave us another very cool video this week!

It’s Building a Fancy Responsive Tile Grid with Tailwind CSS. While I use CSS grid very regularly in my daily work I must admit I only used it for simple stuff. This new video shows you how to do a very fancy and somewhat complex grid, with almost no custom CSS whatsoever. Definitely take a look!

The sponsor of this issue is Windy – the browser extension that transforms any HTML element into a Tailwind CSS component with a single click. Save hours or days when you convert your non-Tailwind sites to Tailwind or go to any website and see how you can build any element with Tailwind CSS.

📚 Learning

How to use Tailwind CSS in Astro

The new static site generator Astro has been making waves in web dev news recently. If you have been playing with it and want to add tailwind to it then this article is for you. It’s a pretty simple process but a written guide is never hurts!

💅 Showcase

Web3Forms

This week’s showcase is full of little delightful details! Things like a subtle light effect on the main CTA button, hand-written text images to highlight important info sections, and clever use of color gradients, it really shows care for the design. A very good source of inspiration if you’re going for a simple but effective landing page.

For the curious, here’s what Web3forms does:

Receive form submissions directly in your email inbox without any server or back-end code. Its free!

🎁 Resource

Blobmaker

You know I’m a huge fan of blobs and shapes in design but I must admit I have a hard time doing myself. That’s how I discovered this week’s resource!

Meet Blobmaker, a web tool that helps you make organic SVG shapes for your next design. You can modify the complexity, contrast, and color of your shpae to generate unique SVG blobs every time.
