Tailwind React was founded by Muhammad Salman Abid, a full stack developer with experience in a wide array of technologies. He had been working with Foundation.css and Bootstrap.css for a while as his choice of css framworks before he got introduced toTailwind.css. The simplicity and flexibility of this framework instantly got him hooked. However, compared to other popular css frameworks, he found that there is a lack of pre-built UI resources out there. This led him to create one that would help others get their ideas converted to prototypes, and potentially elevated to production in the shortest time possible.
