If you haven't yet heard of Tailwind CSS, it's a powerful CSS framework that enables rapid prototyping of HTML emails. Tailwind's low-level utility classes make it easy to write inline CSS, create email templates, and optimize them for the inbox. Using Tailwind will save you time prototyping and adjusting templates to suit your own needs. There are several reasons to use Tailwind, starting with its simplicity and speed.
First, using Tailwind reduces the HTML size of your emails by reducing the number of properties you need to specify. Its unique @apply CSS directive bundles your CSS styles into components, reducing HTML size. Additionally, the shorthand CSS is well supported in email clients and greatly reduces the chance of clipping in Gmail. It is also free and MIT licensed. For more information about Tailwind, see the following videos.
The next benefit to Tailwind is its ability to keep your CSS files small. Tailwind removes unused CSS and minimizes the CSS bundle size, meaning your projects ship with less than 10kB of CSS. Another benefit is that you won't have to reinvent CSS class names - you can simply select from the libraries of available classes. You'll be amazed by how quickly and easily you can create responsive email templates that match the needs of your subscribers.
It's free, and the first thing you should do is install it on your server. You'll be glad you did. Then, just customize your email templates to match the theme. It's really that easy! The free Tailwind Starter Kit comes with over 120 fully coded components and four example pages. It's a great way to start building powerful admin panels! And the best part is, it's free!
Maizzle is a framework that helps you quickly build HTML emails with Tailwind CSS and advanced, email-specific post-processing.
It's powered by a build system that can handle things like templating and various html emails. Maizzle doesn't use any custom tags that expand into predefined table-based HTML markup. The code is all up to you and allows for a lot of creative freedom in how you want your email to look like. It's also one of the only email frameworks that has a second-party extension that allows you to use React and Redux with Tailwind.
