Supports the block editor.

TailPress comes with support for the block editor. CSS-classes for alignment will be generated automatically.

You can modify this within the tailwind.config.js file. To make the editing experience within the block editor more in line with the front end styling, a editor-style.css is generated.

Super fast compiling.

TailPress enables Tailwind's JIT (just-in-time) engine which makes compiling super fast.

The JIT engine uses PurgeCSS which in turn makes sure only classes that you actually use end up in your compiled CSS.

In this video Adam Wathan, creator of Tailwind CSS tells you all about JIT.
