Jekyll Starter Tailwind (Internal CSS)

A starter kit for using Tailwind with Jekyll that includes:

  • A barebones Jekyll starter theme

  • A Gulpfile that does the following:

    • Compiles Tailwind
    • Strips out unused CSS using Purgecss
    • Runs Autoprefixer
    • Minifies your CSS
    • Places CSS directly in <head>
    • Compiles Jekyll
    • Runs Browsersync for local development

Don't want to use internal CSS? Check out the regular version of this starter kit.

What is Tailwind?

"Tailwind is a utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom user interfaces." –Tailwind

What is Jekyll?

"Jekyll is a simple, blog-aware, static site generator perfect for personal, project, or organization sites. Think of it like a file-based CMS, without all the complexity. Jekyll takes your content, renders Markdown and Liquid templates, and spits out a complete, static website ready to be served by Apache, Nginx or another web server. Jekyll is the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host sites right from your GitHub repositories." –Jekyll


Get started

  • bundle install to install Ruby gems
  • npm ci to install npm packages listed in package-lock.json
  • npm run start to compile the site with development settings and run BrowserSync

Build your site

  • npm run build to compile the site for production


Note: By default, Netlify uses jekyll build as the build command. Make sure to change this to npm run build.
