I still find it hard to use libraries like tailwind and such, I prefer a more fully BEM approach where elements are important based on their location in their parents or by what specific selector they are. Using selector names like grid-12 or whatever feels way way too much like putting the presentation data in the html directly instead of just properly linking it…

It seems to me that Pollen CSS allows you to build BEM approach CSS files that use the good ideas from Tailwind (well-defined standard-definitions that can be changed easily at the root), since it’s all based on CSS custom properties (“variables”).
