Setting up a Rails Engine with the TailwindCSS and Hotwire via Importmaps can be rather difficult. There's a lot of undocumented steps to take and it can be overwhelming to approach these problems. In this episode, we look at a step by step approach to both adding TailwindCSS and Turbo & Stimulus into a Rails Engine.
The TailwindUI library provides static styled HTML examples, but this can be difficult to translate into a Rails application. In this episode, we take a look at one of the calendar examples and make it interactive with displaying days that have events as well as returning events on selected days.
