Manual Upgrades

There are some upgrades the Tailwind 3.x Shift can not perform automatically. When Shift detects these it adds a detailed comment to the Pull Request to guide any additional steps you may need to do manually.

Custom Configuration

By default, Shift will look for the Tailwind config file to determine your project path. This will be used as the base path when searching for additional assets and templates.

When not specified, Shift will assume a Laravel project structure. If you are not using a Tailwind configuration file or have a different project structure, you may configure Shift for your project.

Sign in with any of the following services to connect Shift with your Laravel project.

Temporarily push your project to a free, private repository on one of these cloud-based services or upgrade your project locally with Shift for Docker.
