Tailwind CSS is a utility first CSS framework. Instead of focusing on the functionality of the item being styled, Tailwind focuses on how it is displayed.
With this tool, developers are able to test out a variety of styles and easily change their layouts. Tailwind has a collection of buttons that users can copy and paste into any of their existing Tailwind projects.
Who Made It?
Tailwind CSS was developed by Adam Wathan. He is also the author of Refactoring UI and the host of the Full Stack Radio podcast. The buttons collection was created by Tony Lea, a professional web developer.
Who Is It For?
Tailwind CSS is for individuals and businesses that want to build a website. It is a low-level tool, meaning that you do not need a computer science or coding background to use it.
Additionally, it is so easy to use that users are never tempted to reuse old designs. Even users that are building the same component can make two sites that look completely different.
- Utility First – Use utility classes to build custom designs without writing CSS.
- Responsive Design – Use premade utilities to target mobile devices, overriding their larger breakpoints.
- Dark Mode – Use a dark variant to give your site a different style when dark mode is enabled.
- Breakpoints – Define your project’s breakpoints in the theme screens section of your config.
- Adding Base Styles – Tailwind comes with a set of base styles that are called Preflight.
- Plugins – The plugins feature allows you to create links to third parties.

Tailwind buttons are completely free, but users need to purchase Tailwind CSS before they can download the buttons.

“I’ve been working on this collection of Tailwind CSS buttons for quite some time and finally decided to consolidate them and make them available for free.

What Are People Saying?
“I seriously recommend switching to a Utility-First CSS framework, and especially Tailwind. Not only does it speed up production, but it offers so much flexibility and customisation being so low-level. The performance levels are just the cherry on the cake too.” Tom Pickering, Writer for Shape
