Mary UI: Laravel blade components made with daisyUI

Mary UI is a collection of Laravel blade components made for Livewire 3 and styled around daisyUI and Tailwind CSS

What is Mary UI?

Mary UI is a collection of Laravel blade components made for Livewire 3.
These components are built on top of daisyUI and Tailwind CSS.
If you’re a Laravel developer and you’re using Livewire, you’ll love Mary UI because it makes it faster and easier to build web pages.

Mary UI does not ship any custom CSS and relies on daisyUI and Tailwind for out-of-box styling. You can customize most of components styles, by inline overriding daisyUI and Tailwind CSS classes.

How does it look like?

Mary UI allows you to use daisyUI components in your Laravel blade files using Livewire syntax.

To make a form like this: Mary UI form All you need would be these few lines:

<x-form wire:submit="save">
  <x-input label="Name" wire:model="name" />
  <x-input
    label="Amount"
    wire:model="amount"
    prefix="USD"
    money
    hint="It submits an unmasked value" />
  <x-slot:actions>
    <x-button label="Cancel" />
    <x-button label="Click me!" class="btn-primary" type="submit" spinner="save" />
  </x-slot:actions>
</x-form>

    "./app/Livewire/**/**/*.php",

    // Add mary
    "./vendor/robsontenorio/mary/src/View/Components/**/*.php",
  ],

  // Add daisyUI
  plugins: [require("daisyui")],
}

Add Tailwind directives to resources/css/app.css

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

Setup Livewire default app template.

# It creates `views/components/layouts/app.blade.php`
php artisan livewire:layout

Then add @vite on default app template views/components/layouts/app.blade.php

<head>
  ...
  <!-- This -->
  @vite(['resources/css/app.css', 'resources/js/app.js'])
</head>

<body>
