Tailwind is a utility-first CSS framework that can be used to style any web application. It is written in PostCSS and comes with a huge set of built-in utility functions.

In this article, we will learn how to import Tailwind CSS into a Vue.js project.

We will be using the Vue CLI to generate a new Vue.js project. If you don't have the Vue CLI installed, you can install it using the following command:

npm install -g @vue/cli

Once the Vue CLI is installed, we can generate a new project using the following command:

vue create my-project

This will create a new Vue.js project with the default settings.

Next, we need to install Tailwind CSS. We can do this using the following command:

npm install tailwindcss

Once Tailwind CSS is installed, we need to create a configuration file for it. We can do this using the following command:

npx tailwindcss init

This will create a tailwind.config.js file in the root of your project.

Next, we need to create a CSS file where we will import Tailwind CSS. We can do this using the following command:

touch src/tailwind.css

Now, we need to import Tailwind CSS into the src/tailwind.css file. We can do this by adding the following lines to the file:

@import "tailwindcss/base"; 
@import "tailwindcss/components"; 
@import "tailwindcss/utilities";

Next, we need to tell Vue.js to load the src/tailwind.css file. We can do this by adding the following lines to the src/main.js file:

import './tailwind.css'

Now, if we run the project, we should see that the default Tailwind CSS styles are applied to the project.
