Tailwind CSS has a huge impact in the world of web development and one of the reasons is the huge amount of Tailwind component kits. Many Tailwind UI kits have been specifically created for different purposes, from app dashboards to marketing sites. In this article, I'll go through ten notable Tailwind CSS UI kits.

We'll be diving into their components, compatibility with frameworks, and if the kits offer just components or also entire templates.

Flowbite

Price: Free and paid

Components: Yes

Templates: Yes

Frameworks: React, Next, Remix, Vue, Nuxt, Astro, Svelte, and more

Flowbite is a comprehensive UI component kit based on Tailwind CSS. They have an open-sourced free library, as well as a pro version for developers and designers. It offers extensive support for many major frameworks such as React, Vue.js, and Angular.

In conclusion

Lots and lots of component kits and templates have emerged in the last two to three years, both free and paid, and they prove to be incredibly popular amongst developers. The above list is just a fraction of what's out there, but if you were to ask me, I think these are the best ones available right now.

Most free component kits are an excellent way to get started, but if you're a more serious web developer, I would definitely consider buying one or two good component kits. I've done so myself and find them incredibly valuable.
