You'll need to be familiar with Node.js and npm, and have npm installed. You should be comfortable installing packages with npm, and experience creating web apps with React and Tailwind CSS will be very helpful.

Setup Tailwind CSS#

Install Tailwind CSS:

npm i autoprefixer postcss tailwindcss
npx tailwindcss init -p

Point Tailwind CSS to files you have className=".." in:

module.exports = {
  content: ['./src/**/*.{js,jsx,ts,tsx}' /* src folder, for example */],
  theme: {
    extend: {},
  plugins: [],

Add Tailwind CSS to a CSS file:

@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;

Install Flowbite React#

  1. Install Flowbite and Flowbite React:
npm i flowbite flowbite-react # or yarn add flowbite flowbite-react
  1. Add the Flowbite plugin to tailwind.config.js, and include content from flowbite-react:
module.exports = {
  content: [
  plugins: [..., require('flowbite/plugin')],

Try it out#

How you use Flowbite React depends on your project setup. In general, you can just import the components you want to use from flowbite-react and use them in a React .jsx file:

import { Button } from 'flowbite-react';

export default function MyPage() {
  return (
      <Button>Click me</Button>
