    npm init adonisjs@latest my-project -- --kit=webcd my-project
  2. Install Tailwind CSS

    Install tailwindcss and its peer dependencies, then generate your tailwind.config.js and postcss.config.js files.

    npm install -D tailwindcss postcss autoprefixernpx tailwindcss init -p
  3. Configure your template paths

    Add the paths to all of your template files in your tailwind.config.js file.

    /** @type {import('tailwindcss').Config} */
    export default {
      content: [
      theme: {
        extend: {},
      plugins: [],
  4. Add the Tailwind directives to your CSS

    Add the @tailwind directives for each of Tailwind’s layers to your ./resources/css/app.css file.

    @tailwind base;
    @tailwind components;
    @tailwind utilities;
  5. Start your build process

    Run your build process with npm run dev.

    npm run dev
  6. Start using Tailwind in your project

    Make sure your compiled CSS is included in the <head> then start using Tailwind’s utility classes to style your content.
