Introduction to Tailwind CSS

Tailwind CSS is a CSS framework that defines 1000s of CSS classes that are used to replace working with CSS rules and properties directly.

Opening or creating a project

Pinegrow projects are simply folders on your computer that contain a website or web application.

Activating the Tailwind extension

Pinegrow Web Editor has extensions that implement support for frameworks like TailwindCSS, Bootstrap, Foundation… To start working with Tailwind Visual Editor we have to first activate it for the page.

Tailwind CSS Design panel

The Pinegrow Design panel for the Tailwind CSS framework allows you to easily set up a custom theme without editing any config file or setting up a complex compiler. It also allows you to test alternative designs for your whole project quickly and easily.

Tailwind CSS Floating Tools

The Floating Tools panel allows you to style your Tailwind CSS page with many of the common classes directly within the Page View, speeding up page construction and design implementation. No more switching between the page and the Properties or Style Panel. Let’s explore just what this tool allows you to do!


TailwindUI is a premium Tailwind component library created by authors of TailwindCSS. Tailwind Visual Editor adds the TailwindUI library into the Library panel and extends visual controls with Tailwind UI extensions.
