This project was based on gatsby-plugin-tailwindcss

How the heck do I use it?

import React from 'react'
import styled from 'react-emotion'

const Container = styled.div`
const Text = styled.p`
  ${tw`bg-black text-white`};

const Home = () => (
    <Text>I am Text component made with Tailwind CSS + EmotionJS</Text>

export default Home

Why would I use it?

Because Tailwind CSS is awesome. If you used Tachyons before. You know how awesome it utility first CSS. Compared to CSS framework like Bootstrap. -- If you haven't try utility first CSS, give it a try. It's one of the best things in my life --. Tailwind is a more customizable version of Tachyons.

But, because Tailwind CSS gives you alot of class as utilities. The file size gets bloated. In fact it's 1.5 times bigger than Bootstrap. (https://tailwindcss.com/docs/controlling-file-size )

CSS-in-JS to save.

Fortunately, you can use CSS-in-JS like Emotion, to only load needed styles. So you can keep you css size small.

Furthremore, CSS-in-JS is just awesome. CSS in JS: Benefits, Drawbacks, and Tooling

Why Gatsby? Because Gatsby is blazing fast, and comes with alot of plugins
