Webpack Starter

A quick and simple example of using Tailwind CSS with Webpack.

Overview

This project is a deprecated example of a simple Webpack setup for using Tailwind CSS. It was not considered a good starter for real projects as it is not recommended to let the CSS framework dictate the starter webpack setup. It is suggested to use tools like vue-cli or create-react-app instead. For those who want to play around with Tailwind and PostCSS, it is recommended to use the tailwindcss/playground starter.

Features

  • Super simple Webpack setup for using Tailwind CSS.
  • Cloning the project and installing the dependencies.
  • Watch the changes in styles and rebuild the stylesheet using Webpack Development Server.
  • Testing the effects of changes in the index.html file.
  • Building a production bundle for deployment.

Installation

To install and use this theme, follow the steps below:

  1. Clone the project repository:
git clone [repository_url]
  1. Install the dependencies:
npm install
  1. Start up the Webpack Development Server:
npm run start
  1. Make changes to the /src/styles.css or /tailwind.js files. The Webpack Development Server will automatically rebuild the stylesheet on every change.
  2. Test the effects of your changes by opening the /index.html file in the browser.
  3. To build a production bundle, run the following command:
npm run build
  1. The ready-to-deploy bundle will be available at /dist directory.

Summary

This project is a deprecated example of a simple Webpack setup for using Tailwind CSS. It is recommended to use more modern tools like vue-cli or create-react-app for real projects. For playing around with Tailwind and PostCSS, it is suggested to use the tailwindcss/playground starter. The installation process involves cloning the project, installing the dependencies, starting the Webpack Development Server, making changes to CSS and JavaScript files, testing the effects, and building a production bundle for deployment.
