Getting Started

Tailwind-Kit

Tail-Kit is a static site build with Next.js and typescript.

Prerequisites:

Node.js 10.13 or later

Recommanded : Node v12.18.3

Install dependencies:

npm install
# or
yarn install

Run the development server:

npm run dev
# or
yarn dev

Open http://localhost:3000 with your browser to see the result.

You can start editing the page by modifying pages/_index.tsx. The page auto-updates as you edit the file (static folder : /out).

Build the static site:

npm run build
# or
yarn build

  1. /node_modules: This directory contains all of the modules of code that your project depends on (npm packages) are automatically installed.

  2. /public: This directory contain all the public assets that need the project (images, icons).

  3. /pages: This directory contain all pages of the app. See NextJs pages documentation for more details

  4. /components: This directory contain all components and templates of the app.

    1. kit : contains all components and templates used for demonstration/preview. Component/templates are sorted by section (Commerce, Elements, Forms …). Each section have his directory.
    2. layout : contains all layout used in the application. See NextJs layout documentation for more details
    3. site : contains all component used for the structure of the application (header, footer, home, …)
  5. /utils: This directory contain all utils classes, like html parser, html beautifier (use to indent the components code on preview)

  6. editorTheme.tsx: This file is the configuration theme (colors) for the components code preview. See react-prism for more details

  12. README.md: A text file containing useful reference information about your project.

  13. tsconfig.json: The presence of a tsconfig.json file in a directory indicates that the directory is the root of a TypeScript project. The tsconfig.json file specifies the root files and the compiler options required to compile the project.

  14. .gitignore: This file tells git which files it should not track / not maintain a version history for.

  15. yarn-lock.json (See package.json below, first). This is an automatically generated file based on the exact versions of your npm dependencies that were installed for your project. (You won’t change this file directly).

πŸ“‹ Create a new section

Components and templates are sorted by category.

Categories are sorted by section.

A section can have one or more category.

Category can have one or more component/templates.

To add a new main section like Commerce, Element, Form .. you must :

  1. Create your new directory in components/kit/components/{yourSectionName} or components/kit/templates/{yourSectionName}. It’s inside this directory that you will put all your components/templates files.

  2. Create a index.tsx file on this new directory. It will contain the description (categories names, components/tempaltes numbers, title, ….) of the section. See other section files for an example.

  3. Each time you want create a new category on a section you will need create a directory in the directory of this one. Then you will put the component/templates file in the category directory.

See an example :

β”œβ”€β”€ components
	 β”œβ”€β”€ kit
     	β”œβ”€β”€ components
        	β”œβ”€β”€ MyNewSection // section directory
            	index.tsx // section description file
            	β”œβ”€β”€ MyCategory // category directory
                		MyComponent.tsx // My component source file
                        MyComponent2.tsx // My component source file
                        ....
        β”œβ”€β”€ templates
     β”œβ”€β”€ layout
     β”œβ”€β”€ site
β”œβ”€β”€ ...
└── ...

πŸ“ Create a new category

As seen just above, to create a new category you need to create a directory on a section that will contains your components. We also need to create the category page.

  1. Create your new directory in pages/components/{yourCategoryName} or pages/templates/{yourCategoryName}. It’s inside this directory that we will put the category page code.

  2. Create a index.tsx file on this new directory. It will contain all the components/templates that we want import and see in this category. See other category files for an example.

  3. When index.tsx is created NextJs create a route for this category that we can see on : http://localhost:3000/components/{yourCategoryName} or http://localhost:3000/templates/{yourCategoryName}

βž• Create a new component/templates

Components and templates are classics React functional component.

dark/light mode

If you want that your component have a dark version, use Tailwind classes for dark mode (documentation).

Import the component

The last thing to do is to import your component/template on the wanted category file : (/pages/components/{category}/index.tsx) or (/pages/templates/{category}/index.tsx)

To enabled all feature preview like live edition, dark mode, … you need to pass our component to ComponentLayout.

ComponentLayout is the layout who will add all buttons (Code, Copy, Dark mode) and the live edition feature on our component.

ComponentLayout take few props :

  • element: The JSX.Element of our component
  • component: The component
  • title: The title of the component display on the panel
  • jsLink: The link of the component codeon github (if need JS to work)
  • needConfiguration: Boolean if the component/template need a custom tailwind configuration to work
  • vertical: Boolean if the code preview is display on side of the component or below
  • showSwitchMode: Boolean if the component have dark/light implementation (Display or hide the dark mode checkbox)
  • containerClasses: Classes to add on the container of the component (ex : add margin, padding …)
propName propType defaultValue isRequired
element JSX.Element x
component x
title string x
jsLink string
needConfiguration boolean false
vertical boolean false
showSwitchMode boolean false
containerClasses string

Example of the index.tsx file of the toggle category :

import React, { FC } from "react";
import AppLayout from "../../../components/layout/AppLayout";
import ComponentLayout from "../../../components/layout/ComponentLayout";
import SectionHeader from "../../../components/site/header/SectionHeader";
import FormSubscribe from "../../../components/kit/components/form/layout/FormSubscribe";

const TogglePage: FC = () => {
  return (
     <AppLayout
      title="Toggle, Checkbox and Radio buttons components for tailwind css"
      desc="Free and open source toggle, checkbox and radio buttons components for tailwind css"
    >
      <SectionHeader title="Form layout" />
      <ComponentLayout
        title="Subscribe"
        element={<FormSubscribe label="Subscribe" placeholder="Email" />}
        component={FormSubscribe}
      />
    </AppLayout>
  );
};

export default TogglePage;
