Still going with the Bulma course and have I told you I found one super cool about creating a color in tool in React? Yeahh so much interesting stuff around...

Curious, why Bulma? 
When I found TailwindCSS I forgot about all CSS frameworks 😃

Many reasons, one is that when I wanted to ditch Bootstrap there were about 3 options on my radar (not including Tailwind). I came across a svelte template where some guy added Tailwind and to me, it was a bunch of PostCSS "magic" just to get the framework working.

I __really__ don't like seeing all those weird-ass classes on the HTML, it looks messy. 
And I've been bombarded with the Tailwind stuff left and right, to me it's the new Bootstrap in terms of people using it just because...

We use @apply to clarify the number of classes inside HTML and extract components.
 
I think TailwindCSS is here to stay for a long time. The main reason is that it's utility first. So basically you are using pure CSS but without writing CSS. It's very convenient and to be honest, I can't imagine using something else after I tried Tailwind.

I don't like CSS Frameworks (Bulma, Bootstrap, etc.) because with their popularity the web is becoming very similar. People aren't doing any design with them, just using the default components. 

TailwindCSS made a very smart move here. They have components but they are very expensive so it won't be popular. Most of the people are going back to really designing things.

Never had problems with Tailwind set up. I use it with all my React, pure JS, and Ruby on Rails projects.

Thanks for the well-thought response Dmitrii! You make good points there. 

I don't agree with Bulma making sites similar like Bootstrap does, sure someone can just be a lazy ass and use default components but I'm definitely not being that person and Bulma allows one to create more custom-made sites whereas on Boostrap one has to fight with the tool to make something that doesn't look generic.

Unfortunately, I cannot see Tailwind in a different way than I do now. One of the main things about me is that if I see a bunch of people using one thing and hyping it, I get instantly turned off by it and go find something different to use. That is whether I have tried it before or not.
