Jigsaw + Tailwind CSS Starter Kit

A starter kit for using the Jigsaw static site generator with Tailwind CSS.

Netlify Status


  • Webpack + Laravel Mix build system
  • tailwind.config.js config file in root, customize as needed
  • Removes unused Tailwind CSS classes with laravel-mix-purgecss
  • PostCSS instead of Sass - fewer dependencies, faster Tailwind builds
  • Basic example of @applying Tailwind CSS classes - useful for styling Markdown content
  • Includes a blade.php file where you can add your own Blade extensions (documentation)


Getting Started

  1. Clone this repo

    git clone
  2. Navigate to the folder

    cd jigsaw-tailwindcss
  3. Install PHP dependencies

    composer install
  4. Install JS dependencies

    npm install
  5. Run the dev script to build the site

    npm run dev

To use BrowserSync, run the watch script instead: npm run watch

By default, unused CSS will be purged only when running npm run production - however, this is configurable.
