Tail wind cheat sheet

A reference list of common CSS properties and their relative classes that you will use in Tailwind

I wrote this cheat sheet because I found myself constantly referencing Tailwind documents to remind certain classes (I’m just starting out and I don’t have enough memory yet)

This is what I use most often.

Margin and fill

Make up these 3 tables. Add a dash before the value (for example,pt-2,m-auto)
