Themes are an essential part of an application. They help us design our apps with colors, styles, icons, and more.
Right now, the Tailwind CSS theme is one of the trending CSS frameworks used in developing modern web applications. It contains predefined CSS helper classes to develop an app with less CSS.
Our Syncfusion Essential JS 2 and Blazor platforms provide the Tailwind CSS theme in both dark and light modes. Check out our online demos to view the appearance of the Syncfusion components in Tailwind CSS themes.
Let’s see how to use this theme in your web applications by looking at code examples.
Tailwind CSS themes
Here is how some of our frequently used components (DataGrid, Gantt Chart, Pivot Table, File Manager, Inputs, and Button components) appear with the Tailwind CSS theme.
Syncfusion’s Tailwind CSS theme uses indigo as the primary color and the rest of the colors are selected based on it.
Refer to the following screenshots. We have listed the common color variables used in the Syncfusion Tailwind CSS themes for all UI components.
If you want to try out the Tailwind CSS theme in your Blazor application, then you can use either CDN or static assets like NuGet packages.
Refer to the following code examples to use the Tailwind CSS themes using CDN.

The Syncfusion Blazor themes are available as static web assets in Syncfusion.Blazor and Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes NuGet packages.
Add the following reference link inside the <head> element of the ~/Pages/_Host.cshtml file for the Blazor server app or the ~/wwwroot/index.html file for the Blazor WebAssembly app.
