Tailwind Weekly #74: new Tailwind UI and Headless UI updates!

Hello folks!

We got a new Tailwind UI update and a Headless UI update, this time about "Comboboxes", check out the News section to learn more about it but I gotta tell you, they're πŸ’…. Β 

P.S. I couldn't send the newsletter without talking a bit about what's happening in Ukraine right now. We just barely got over a plague and now there's a war, it's honestly surreal. If you want to support Ukraine here's a great resource on how to help and the best non-profits to donate to.

🌟 News

With the new Tailwind UI and Headless UI updates we now have what the Tailwind team calls "Comboboxes" components, some people would also call them "Autocomplete" components.

Beautiful πŸ’…

You can check out the new Comboboxes designs here and the new Headless UI Combobox component here.

To top it all off, the team also released a video of Simon coding a Combobox from scratch using the Headless UI component. It's a bit long (38m) but it's sooo worth it.
