A simple tool to setup Tailwind CSS in your fresh project with a Single Command.


🚀 New Project

Scaffold a new project of your choice of framework, with tailwindcss

npx twify@latest create vite <my-app-directory>

# Or with preferred package Manager
# Yarn
npx twify@latest yarn create vite <my-app-directory>
npx twify@latest pnpm create vite <my-app-directory>

Above the project that is specified is vite. You can choose any of the following.

Project Usage:

Below commands will install the @latest versions of the respective frameworks.

Framework Command
Next 13 npx twify@latest create next <my-app>
Remix npx twify@latest create remix <my-app>

You can pass all the framework specific flags as well like the following,

npx twify@latest pnpm create vite my-vite-app --template vue-ts

Above will create a new project with the vite vue typescript project with the pnpm package manager and it will be configured with Tailwind CSS.

🎁 Existing Project

You can also configure existing project with tailwindcss.

npx twify@latest init

Command Options

Other than --help you can also do more.

Keep Existing CSS

By default, twify will replace your existing CSS and only keep Tailwind. But if you want to keep the existing CSS you can use the -k, --keep flag.

npx twify init -k
# OR
npx twify init --keep

Force Package Manager for Installation

By default, twify will try to guess the Package Manager for installing dependencies in your project but if you want to force your standard or you don't want to take any chances you can use the -i, --installer option.

npx twify init -i yarn # Options: npm, yarn, pnpm
# OR
npx twify init --installer yarn

Configure Tailwind Prettier

Optionally if you want to install the Tailwind Prettier Plugin also, you can opt for -p, --pretty flag. Because this plugin doesn't play well with other prettier plugins it is kept under the flag not a default.

npx twify init -p
# OR
npx twify init --pretty
