tailwindcss 3 is not loading css in react

i have been using tailwindcss 2 but i wanted to upgrade to 3. I followed their tutorial but is not working i dont know why.

tailwind.config.js

module.exports = {
  content: [
    "./src/**/*.{js,jsx,,ts,tsx}",
  ],
  theme: {
    extend: {

    },
  },
  plugins: [],
}

postcss.config.js

module.exports = {
  plugins: {
    tailwindcss: {},
    autoprefixer: {},
  },
}

index.css

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

index.css is imported in index.tsx.

index.tsx file

import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import './index.css';
import 'react-toastify/dist/ReactToastify.css';
import App from './App';
import { Provider } from 'react-redux';
import { store } from './redux/store';
import { BrowserRouter } from 'react-router-dom'

ReactDOM.render(
  <BrowserRouter>
    <Provider store={store}>
      <App />
    </Provider>
  </BrowserRouter>,
  document.getElementById('root')
);

Answer

I found the issue, you need to update react-scripts to the latest update npm install react-scripts@latest
