We got a new tooling announcement this week that got me very excited! I have been dying to find a way to automatically sort my tailwind classes for a while now and the Tailwind Labs team delivered a great solution, a prettier plugin! Check out the news section for more info 😉.
Also, and I must admit I'm VERY guilty 😅, Adam clarified how to write Tailwind CSS properly, check it out:
Say hello to the
prettier-plugin-tailwindcss plugin, an official Prettier plugin for automatically sorting your Tailwind classes, here's the blog post about it.
Even better, we also got a video showcasing how to install it, how to use it and how to format your entire project with it if you want, I'm definitely trying this on a couple of projects this weekend 😄.

I know I know, I have been posting a lot of articles from Josh lately but they're so freakin good! This one is about what makes a good gradient and how to properly create them using CSS. It also touches on some topics about color and color formats, definitely a great read!
This year's Laracon Online website is made by Tailwind CSS and it has quite a unique design! Lots of bright colors on a dark background and illustrations that kind of remind me of Rick and Morty characters, also that mini-game at the end of the page is hilarious 😂.
If you like CSS and colors then I think you'll love this tool. It extracts all the colors from any URL you give it and then formats them nicely to use as CSS properties. With a bit of editing, you could format that code to use the colors inside your Tailwind config. Definitely a great tool to have in your arsenal!
