React app with TypeScript and TailwindCSS | Quick Setup Guide

Hello Guys,

In this tutorial, we will use the full potential of React by setting up an application with TypeScript and TailwindCSS. I will try to explain to you through each step, ensuring you grasp all the necessary details to create a React app with TypeScript and TailwindCSS. Let's get started to unlock the true power of these technologies!

Creating the React app with Typescript Template

This is a really simple step. You have to add a template flag with the create-react-app command. Just run the following command:

npx create-react-app app --template typescript

You can freely change the project name to "app" with anything you want. Once the setup is installed, simply use the cd command to go into the project directory.

cd app

Adding TailwindCss

Let's add the TailwindCss in our newly created project. First we need to install the necessary modules for tailwindcss. Let's run the following command:

npm install -D tailwindcss postcss autoprefixer

And now we need to create a config file for the tailwindcss which can be created easily with the following command:

npx tailwindcss init -p

Now open the newly created config file "tailwind.config.js" and update the file with the following code.

Next, we need to add the directives for the tailwindcss in the "src/index.css" file and add the following code at the top of the file.

@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;

We have setup TypeScript and TailwindCss in react application. Now let's check if it works. Update the "src/App.tsx" file with the following snippet.

import React from 'react';
import './App.css';
