- Tailwind is what’s called a utility-first CSS, which differs from what we do in our everyday workflows: semantic CSS. The difference between semantic CSS and utility CSS is that the former tries to groups style elements by the name of the visual sections that appear on the page. So, if you have a navigation menu, cards, carousel, etc., on a page, the semantic way of doing things would be to group CSS style rules under classes such as
.carousel, etc., which their sub-sections labeled accordingly (for example,
.card-footer, etc.). This is by far the most common approach to CSS, and we all are familiar with it through frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, Bulma, UI Kit, etc.
- SAAS When we write HTML, we nest elements inside other elements. But when writing CSS, we have to write a flat hierarchy of rules, which makes it hard to mentally “fit” the CSS onto the HTML. With Sass, you can mimic the page structure inside your style filesAll this doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the goodies Sass offers: modular design, include files, mixins, inheritance . . . the list goes on and on. Sure, you’ll need to learn a Sass compiler workflow and include it into yours, but in my opinion, that couple of hours spent is an investment that will pay you over and over!
