To use @apply from Tailwind CSS in plain CSS, you can create a custom CSS class that applies the Tailwind utility classes using @apply. Here's an example:

  1. Define your custom CSS class:
1
2
3
.custom-class {
  @apply bg-blue-500 text-white p-4 rounded-md;
}


  1. Use your custom class in your HTML:
1
2
3
<div class="custom-class">
  This is a styled div
</div>


When you apply the custom class to an element, it will automatically apply all the utility classes specified in the @apply directive. Note that this method may not work in all cases, as @apply is a PostCSS feature and may not be fully supported in all browsers.
