Install Tailwind Css In Laravel With Laravel Ui.


1. Laravel Ui.

In this tutorial, I will explain how we can install tailwind css in laravel with laravel ui. So you need to install laravel ui version 3. laravel ui doesn't support tailwind css, laravel ui 3 support bootstrap packages. I will remove bootstrap packages and install tailwind css packages after installed laravel ui version 3. read install laravel ui package in any kind of laravel version tutorial.


Remember:  Laravel ui 3 version does not support tailwind css. after successfully installed laravel ui 3 you will need to update bootstrap to tailwind css manually.


2. Remove Bootstrap Packages.

Package.json: After installed laravel ui version 3 you will get some bootstrap packages file. You need to remove bootstrap files to use tailwind css.


| remove bootstrap packages from package.json
"bootstrap": "^4.0.0",
"jquery": "^3.2",
"popper.js": "^1.12",
"resolve-url-loader": "^2.3.1",
"sass": "^1.20.1",
"sass-loader": "^8.0.0",


app.css: Now you need to remove bootstrap file from app.css file.


bootstrap.js: remove some bootstrap and jquery information from bootstrap js file.


| remove bootstrap and jquery from bootstrap.js file
try {
    window.Popper = require('popper.js').default;
    window.$ = window.jQuery = require('jquery');

} catch (e) {}


3. Add Tailwind Css Packages.

Package.json: Now add tailwind css packages files in package.json file.


| add tailwind css packages in package.json
"@tailwindcss/forms": "^0.2.1",
"@tailwindcss/typography": "^0.3.0",
"postcss": "^8.1.14",
"postcss-import": "^12.0.1",
"tailwindcss": "^2.0.1",


app.css: Now you need to add tailwind css file on app.css file.


| add tailwind css files in resources app.css
@import 'tailwindcss/base';
@import 'tailwindcss/components';
@import 'tailwindcss/utilities';


webpack.mix.js: Now you need to add tailwind css file information on laravel mix file.


| webpack.mix.js
const mix = require('laravel-mix');
mix.js('resources/js/app.js', 'public/js').vue()
    .postCss('resources/css/app.css', 'public/css', [

if (mix.inProduction()) {


tailwind.config.js: Don't forget to create and add tailwind config file and information to install tailwind css. you need to create tailwind css config file in laravel project root folder.


const defaultTheme = require('tailwindcss/defaultTheme');

module.exports = {
    purge: [

    theme: {
        extend: {
            fontFamily: {
                sans: ['Nunito', ...defaultTheme.fontFamily.sans],

    variants: {
        extend: {
            opacity: ['disabled'],

    plugins: [require('@tailwindcss/forms')],
