Headless UI v1.6, Tailwind UI team management, Tailwind Play improvements, and more

It’s been a while since I’ve written about what we’ve been working on so I have a lot to share! Too much honestly — my main motivator for even getting this update out is that we’ve got even more stuff coming next week, and I feel like I’m not allowed to share that stuff until I share all of the stuff we’ve already shipped.

Headless UI v1.5: The One With Comboboxes

We just released Headless UI v1.5, which includes a brand new Combobox component. Comboboxes are like select controls but with autocomplete/typeahead functionality, and are a great alternative to a regular select when you’re working with large datasets and want to quickly filter for the right option.

Tailwind UI: Now with React + Vue support

Last year we released Tailwind UI — a huge directory of professionally designed UI examples built with Tailwind CSS. Up until now, all of the examples in Tailwind UI have been pure HTML which is sort of the lowest common denominator for all web developers, and makes it possible to adapt them to any templating language or JavaScript framework.

Just-In-Time: The Next Generation of Tailwind CSS

One of the hardest constraints we’ve had to deal with as we’ve improved Tailwind CSS over the years is the generated file size in development. With enough customizations to your config file, the generated CSS can reach 10mb or more, and there’s only so much CSS that build tools and even the browser itself will comfortably tolerate.

Welcoming James McDonald to Tailwind Labs

Many years ago I got a message from Steve that said something like “Have I ever shared this guy’s Dribbble profile with you before? Been following him forever, some of my absolute favorite work I’ve ever found”. That person was James McDonald, and today we’re totally over the moon to share that James is joining our team full-time.

Welcoming David Luhr to Tailwind Labs

Multi-line truncation with @tailwindcss/line-clamp

Imagine you’re implementing a beautiful design you or someone on your team carefully crafted in Figma. You’ve nailed all the different layouts at each breakpoint, perfected the whitespace and typography, and the photography you’re using is really bringing the design to life.

Headless UI: Unstyled, Accessible UI Components

One of the biggest pain points when building modern web applications is building custom components like select menus, dropdowns, toggles, modals, tabs, radio groups — components that are pretty similar from project to project, but never quite the same.

"What's new in Tailwind CSS?" on YouTube

A lot of cool stuff has been added to Tailwind since the last time we published any screencasts, so we thought it would be a great idea to record a little series that covers all of the new additions.

Building the Tailwind Blog with Next.js

One of the things we believe as a team is that everything we make should be sealed with a blog post. Forcing ourselves to write up a short announcement post for every project we work on acts as a built-in quality check, making sure that we never call a project “done” until we feel comfortable telling the world it’s out there.
