StencilJS Starter Kit

Starter Kit by Martin Hettiger

StencilJS Starter Kit Main Screenshot

Get up and running quickly using Statamic, StencilJS, TailwindCSS and Storybook.

Get up and running quickly using the following tech:

  • Statamic
  • StencilJS
  • Tailwind CSS
  • Storybook

Tailwind is optional. However, support is baked in. You can even use Tailwind inside the shadow DOM.


  1. Start a new Statamic project using this starter kit.
cd /path/to/project
npm install
cd resources/components
npm install
cd -


npm run start

Tailwind CSS Support

As you can imagine, Tailwind does not play nice with the shadow DOM of StencilJS components. However, there's a workaround:

  1. Add <meta name="tailwind-href" content="{{ mix src='css/tailwind.css' }}"> to the head tag
  2. Use <StyledHost> instead of <Host> in your components

Of course these changes have already been applied in layout.antlers.html and my-quote.tsx.

There are other options to get the Tailwind CSS href. However, the above approach allows you to use your component library without having to add any global styles to the page.

Using Tailwind inside StencilJS has the implication of one big CSS file shared across all components. Be aware that Stencil's lazy loading mechanism is not working at it's full potential when using Tailwind.
