Getting started

AstroWind tries to give you quick access to creating a website using Astro 4.0 + Tailwind CSS. It's a free theme which focuses on simplicity, good practices and high performance.

Very little vanilla javascript is used only to provide basic functionality so that each developer decides which framework (React, Vue, Svelte, Solid JS...) to use and how to approach their goals.

In this version the template supports all the options in the output configuration, static, hybrid and server, but the blog only works with prerender = true. We are working on the next version and aim to make it fully compatible with SSR.

Astro looks for .astro or .md files in the src/pages/ directory. Each page is exposed as a route based on its file name.

There's nothing special about src/components/, but that's where we like to put any Astro/React/Vue/Svelte/Preact components.

Any static assets, like images, can be placed in the public/ directory if they do not require any transformation or in the assets/ directory if they are imported directly.
