How to Build A Tweet Component with Tailwind CSS - Complete Tutorial

Kicking off my new Tailwind CSS Let's Build series I decided to start with a component and what better component than a Tweet on Twitter.

Follow along in the build to see how I'll use a combination of Tailwind CSS, Twitters UI icons, and some trial and error to create a very similar experience that you see on

I'll leverage CodePen and the version of Tailwind CSS. I'll eventually install and configure Tailwind CSS locally instead of always leveraging a CDN but for quick prototypes and builds such as this one it makes a lot of sense to use.

How to Build A Tweet Component with Tailwind CSS - Complete Tutorial

Tailwind CSS tutorial

In this tutorial I would like to introduce you to one of the fastest growing and promising CSS Frameworks at the moment, Tailwind CSS. It is different from other frameworks, such as Bootstrap, because it is built on a new way of building user interfaces using a utility-first CSS classes structure, as opposed to the OOCSS structure from other frameworks.

By the end of this guide you will be able to install, configure and build a responsive hero section (live demo) using the utility-first classes from Tailwind CSS and configure the project using the recommended PostCSS powered Tailwind configuration file for better maintainability and versatility.

Here’s the table of contents for this tutorial for Tailwind CSS:

  • Introducing Tailwind CSS
  • Adding Tailwind CSS to your project via a package manager
  • Creating the configuration file and process your CSS with Tailwind
  • Building a responsive hero section using the utility-first classes from Tailwind
  • Customize fonts, colors and add extra classes using the configuration file
  • Reduce loading time and file size by purging the unused classes from your CSS
  • Conclusion and summary

Building a Photo Gallery With CSS Grid and Tailwind CSS

Building a photo gallery has been a tough nut to crack for so many years. Throughout my career, I’ve used <table> layouts, <div>s with brittle margins and set widths, and tried my hand at flexbox. While all of these methods have worked, none of them felt like that silver bullet solution.

Then one day, the CSS gods bestowed upon us the magical power of CSS grids. Now, making a grid-based layout is an absolute delight. And, when we use grids with Tailwind CSS, we can create beautiful, functional UIs in a fraction of the time it used to take. So, let’s hop right in and see how we can use them to make a photo gallery.

  • The Set-Up
  • Our HTML
  • Layouts With CSS Grid
  • Mobile Layout
  • Styling With Tailwind CSS
  • The Wrap-Up
