Install Tailwind

Install Tailwind


[1. Install Tailwind via npm]
(Using npm)
npm install tailwindcss

(Using Yarn)
yarn add tailwindcss

[2. Add Tailwind to your CSS]
Use the @tailwind directive to inject Tailwind’s base, components, and utilities styles into your CSS:
Create tailwind.css or similarly named file and add the following:

@tailwind base;

@tailwind components;

@tailwind utilities;

(Tailwind will swap these directives out at build time with all of its generated CSS.)

[3. Create your Tailwind config file (optional)]
npx tailwind init

This will create a minimal tailwind.config.js file at the root of your project:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
  theme: {},
  variants: {},
  plugins: [],

[4. Process your CSS with Tailwind]
[Using Tailwind CLI]
For simple projects or just giving Tailwind a spin, you can use the Tailwind CLI tool to process your CSS:
npx tailwind build styles.css -o output.css

Use the npx tailwind help build command to learn more about the various CLI options.

[Using Tailwind with PostCSS]
For most projects, you’ll want to add Tailwind as a PostCSS plugin in your build chain. Generally this means adding Tailwind as a plugin in your postcss.config.js file:

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    // ...
    // ...
