We have Tailwind CSS author Adam Wathan on to discuss utility-first CSS, and why it’s a viable alternative to using semantic classes or BEM naming conventions. If you’ve heard of utility-first CSS but think it’s a misguided idea, or have only a vague idea of what utility CSS or atomic CSS is, this is the podcast for you!
We discuss the problems with “candle drip” CSS that can accumulate over time, and how Tailwind CSS is more than just utility CSS, it’s a workflow for rapidly prototyping CSS and building scalable CSS.
