What's Preline UI?

It's an open-source set of prebuilt UI components based on the utility-first Tailwind CSS framework.

Why use Preline UI?

Based on the Tailwind CSS utility classes, Preline UI's prebuilt components and UI elements help you quickly design and customize responsive mobile-first websites with diverse predefined components (such as modals, buttons, alerts, cards and more).

What's in the box?

Components are grouped by visual usability criteria (components, navigation, forms, etc.) and styled directly on top of Tailwind CSS, making them easy to extend and customize. This is a lifesaver for developers looking to create a unique and eye-catching design system without the hassle of creating each component by hand.
