Introducing Tailwinder – Home for Tailwind Fans – Powered with Appwrite 🚀



Overview of My Submission

I want to begin this by saying that advanced backend improvement is just not a ache anymore! As a Laravel developer, I actually had no concept that Appwrite might do all these superb stuff and save hours of coding for me.

When this hackathon was introduced, I did not know what’s Appwrite or find out how to use it. After studying the DOCs and asking many questions within the Assist Thread , Twitter and wherever I might discover data, It grew to become clear to me that I could make one thing distinctive utilizing this magnificent know-how.

I did not need to recreate one thing that already exists or to make a clone of something. What I actually wished to do is to consider a fancy structured web site that solves a problem or including worth to the group. And one the issues I really like probably the most since I began coding is TailwindCSS for my CSS work. It makes our lives a lot simpler and it is fairly easy even for backend builders. So I believed why not making a COMPLETE group for Tailwind customers the place they’ll create, share, be taught, remark and replace. Utilizing appwrite’s Web SDK and Node SDK, that grew to become attainable.

From that 👆 I created Tailwinder 🚀 :

At first, I simply considered creating TailwindCSS on-line instruments. However after awhile of discovering Appwrite, I figured that it may be way more than what I’ve ever had in thoughts for this mission. It has dynamic URLs, footage, buttons and dynamic the whole lot! 😍
