Tailwind Weekly #62: New video and some sneak peeks of what's to come!

Hello folks!

It’s been a slow week on the news side but we did get some sneak peeks of what’s to come. I’m particularly excited by this tweet showing possible customizations for the tailwind-typography plugin with classes right there on the code. It’s 🤯.

Now, on to the usual!

Tailwind Mobile

Now, this one is a treat! Tailwind Mobile is a collection of pixel-perfect mobile UI components built with Tailwind and they’re completely free. They’re meant to be used with a “parent” framework like Ionic or Framework7. As of now they only have a React version but it seems the Vue and Svelte versions are coming soon.
