Tailwind Jekyll Starter

A starter kit for using Tailwind (v0.6.1) with Jekyll that includes:

  • A barebones Jekyll starter theme

  • A Gulp file with a default task that does the following:

What is Tailwind?

"Tailwind is a utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom user interfaces." – Tailwind

What is Jekyll?

"Jekyll is a simple, blog-aware, static site generator perfect for personal, project, or organization sites. Think of it like a file-based CMS, without all the complexity. Jekyll takes your content, renders Markdown and Liquid templates, and spits out a complete, static website ready to be served by Apache, Nginx or another web server. Jekyll is the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host sites right from your GitHub repositories." – Jekyll


Getting started

  • bundle install to install Ruby gems
  • npm install to install npm packages
  • gulp to run the default Gulp task
