Bulma and Symfony’s Webpack Encore

I recently had to integrate Bulma into Webpack encore for a new initiative at work. I was unable to find any resources specifically dedicated to the integration of these two technologies so I thought I’d write a post. The integration is pretty straight forward, however, I did run into some compilation errors that stemmed from the Bulma Sass files, so I’ll also be sharing the fixes I found for them.

We first need to install a few dependencies:

  • Bulma : the framework itself by running npm install bulma --save-dev
  • node-sass: because Bulma is built with Sass, we need to install…

I recently had the chance to choose and work with the TailwindCSS framework for a project at work.

After some initial hesitation about its utility-first CSS concept, I conducted a bit more research and interacted with the tailwind community. I eventually came away with enough buy-in to revise my initial judgement and give it a shot.

A most pleasant experience!

I’m currently working on a project that uses PHP’s Symfony framework on the backend and was tasked with integrating Tailwind into Webpack encore, Symfony’s version of Webpack.

Here’s how I went about integrating them.

First, we need to install a…
