Tailored for Email Development
I love the choice of utility classes for email development. Writing a bunch of small, single-purpose CSS classes to style a component is really a more efficient way of writing inline CSS.
Maizzle also includes a lot of niceties specific to email developers, such as , , , automatically prevent widows, and more.
Also while TailwindCSS defaults to modern units like
vh, Maizzle’s default output uses units like
px and attributes like
bgcolor (also still a thing in email development). Maizzle does this by customizing
tailwind.config.js with email-friendly CSS. This is a huge piece that I was missing from previous attempts to use a modern web framework to build emails 🔥.
Worth noting is that we’re still writing HTML in Maizzle. Other options like MJML and Foundation abstract away some of the verbose HTML in custom tags like
<button>. While some find that freeing, I find it limiting. Maizzle allows us to write the HTML we really want.
Maizzle abstracts away some annoyances of email development by solving them with modern web technologies, allowing:
Web Devs to code proper emails using tools & techniques they're already familiar with.
Email Devs to build emails quick without losing control of their code.
