Don't wrap

Use .flex-no-wrap to prevent flex items from wrapping, causing inflexible items to overflow the container if necessary:

1
2
3
<div class="flex flex-no-wrap bg-gray-200">
  <div class="w-2/5 flex-none p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">1</div>
  </div>
  <div class="w-2/5 flex-none p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">2</div>
  </div>
  <div class="w-2/5 flex-none p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">3</div>
  </div>
</div>

Wrap normally

Use .flex-wrap to allow flex items to wrap:

1
2
3
<div class="flex flex-wrap bg-gray-200">
  <div class="w-2/5 p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">1</div>
  </div>
  <div class="w-2/5 p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">2</div>
  </div>
  <div class="w-2/5 p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">3</div>
  </div>
</div>

Wrap reversed

Use .flex-wrap-reverse to wrap flex items in the reverse direction:

1
2
3
<div class="flex flex-wrap-reverse bg-gray-200">
  <div class="w-2/5 p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">1</div>
  </div>
  <div class="w-2/5 p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">2</div>
  </div>
  <div class="w-2/5 p-2">
    <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">3</div>
  </div>
</div>

Responsive

To control how flex items wrap at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing utility class. For example, use md:flex-wrap-reverse to apply the flex-wrap-reverse utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Responsive and pseudo-class variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for flex-wrap utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the flex-wrap utilities by modifying the flexWrap property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
variants: {
    // ...
-   flexWrap: ['responsive'],
+   flexWrap: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus'],
}
}

Disabling

If you don't plan to use the flex-wrap utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the flexWrap property to false in the corePlugins section of your config file:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
corePlugins: {
    // ...
+   flexWrap: false,
}
}
