Ever since I first discovered Tailwind CSS, I have been in love. This framework is incredibly powerful and allows you to create a modern website without ever needing to write a single line of CSS. Sure, your HTML might get a little bulky, but overall it is much easier to type out your class names to style elements instead of making a CSS attribute for everything.
Tailwind developers love each other. You can tell by the sheer number of free Tailwind component libraries that exist. Developers can tap into these libraries and use the built-in Tailwind components to build their websites!
Let’s run through some of my favorite Tailwind component libraries!
Let’s start with the top pick. Tailwind Toolbox is maintained by Amrit Nagi and includes over 45 landing page templates, 16 components, and tons of other listings.
You can get started with Tailwind Toolbox’s open-source starter templates and components, along with plugins, tools, generators, kits, and guides, to help you learn how to use Tailwind CSS more effectively.
Kometa UI Kit
The Kometa UI Kit is a Tailwind CSS kit that includes over 130 components and layout blocks across categories, including navigation, headers, features, pricing, FAQ, content, teams, blogs, and stats.
As a Kitwind product, Kometa UI represents the best visual design and layout. You can use any component from the Kometa UI Kit by clicking on the parent classification, finding a variation you like, and copying the code either as plain HTML, Vue, or React. Each layout block is fully responsive and available as an HTML snippet or a React/Vue component.
Tailblocks is one of my top favorites. You’ll find 60+ minimalist layout blocks in Tailblocks, such as testimonials, steps, statistics, pricing, headers, galleries, footers, and features. Several cool features of Tailblocks components include dark mode support and the ability to change primary colors from the interface. The project’s GitHub repo has over 5.1k stars and has been forked over 400 times, so it’s pretty popular.
A layout block can be used by selecting it, choosing a color from the color palette, selecting dark or light mode, then clicking the View Code button.
More than 50 Tailwind CSS components are included in the Meraki UI collection. Khattab Wedaa and Mosab Ibrahim created this Tailwind components collection, which includes alerts, login forms, buttons, cards, dropdowns, navbars, pagination, and footers. You can use any component by copying it.
