In the meantime, what would be the best method to implement something like tailwindcss globally for the studio?

This is for custom components ?

Checked with the team. It’s currently not easy to extend the webpack-config, but there's a couple of ways to do it
• If you want to have full control over the tailwind build: Expose the custom input component as a plugin / npm-package (that you can alias on local dev)
• In order to import compiled Tailwindcss, you can do: 
import 'mytailwind.css?raw'
 in a component file

Cool thanks

, for anyone else wanting to implement the second solution you can do the following;

1. add the tailwind base css

// styles/tailwind.css
@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;
2. add your postcss.config.js

// postcss.config.js
module.exports = {
  plugins: {
    tailwindcss: {},
    autoprefixer: {},

3. add your tailwind config

// tailwind.config.js
npx tailwindcss init

4. add a build script to your package.json

// package.json
"scripts": {
  "tailwind:build": "npx tailwindcss build ./styles/tailwind.css -o ./styles/tailwind.output.css"
5. import the css in your Component

import "../styles/tailwind.output.css?raw"
